Venue TBC

Kirsty Mackay has been working collaboratively with communities across England, documenting the impact of the cost-of-living crisis and the realities of poverty in the world’s 6th largest economy. We will be exhibiting the resulting project entitled The Magic Money Tree, produced in collaboration with The New Art Gallery, Walsall. 

Born in Glasgow and based in Bristol, Kirsty Mackay is a photographic artist, educator, activist and filmmaker. Her research-led documentary practice examines issues of gender, class and discrimination. Her last book, The Fish That Never Swam (2021) was an elegy to her hometown of Glasgow, and the fallout of 1970s housing developments that led to the fragmentation of working-class communities and neighbourhoods.
