The University Gallery is pleased to present the Blake Prize Touring Exhibition from 11 June to 19 July this year.

Each year the Blake provides a platform for artists and poets to explore the nature of the spiritual and religious imagination through a wide range of artistic responses. These responses explore the nature of human knowledge as well as our responsibilities to the wider creation and specifically issues of human justice. While some works focus on the substance of religious tradition, there are many artists and poets who are drawn to illuminate the nature of the human project, its health and its survival. This involves both inspiration and irritation within the creative process as artists and poets demonstrate the wider social function of the arts. A healthy society welcomes and nurtures this imagination
of alternatives.
