Keep on the Grass:
The Language of Signs.
A playful exploration of instruction in public places.

Opens on 1 May 2024
Window Gallery

A free exhibition

Signs are everywhere. They tell us where we are, where we can go and where we can’t go. They tell us what we can do and what we can’t. Signs are about information but they are also about behaviour: they set a tone.

Signs take up space. They affect what our cities look like. They can help us get around, but they can also get in the way.  And sometimes signs make us laugh.

Are there too many signs? What kind of signs work best for you? How do they make you feel? 

The exhibition invites you to think about the role of signs in public spaces: what signs are needed, which ones work and why.


Let us know what you think and share pictures of signs you spot when you are out and about.
