In March 2014, South African photographer George Hallett was invited to the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan), Preston, as part of the Distinguished Visitor Programme.
His presence at UCLan was marked by a workshop with photography students, a public lecture, and the exhibition Consigned for Future Memory presented at PR1 Gallery and the Centre for Contemporary Art until 11 April 2014.
George Hallett’s visit and exhibition were organised by Making Histories Visible, an interdisciplinary visual art research project led by Professor Lubaina Himid. It is part of an on-going academic and curatorial project around Hallett’s early work in South Africa in the 1960s and in the UK in the 1970s-80s.
