This project involves 15 artists who have created original works that reference the closing and demolition of the Whiteheads steelworks in Newport, Wales.

The installation uses a variety of methods to highlight issues surrounding work, closure and the changing landscape of the area.

This includes some stunning portraits of former steel workers at the plant.

From the end of the month the exhibition will combine the ongoing Welsh project with work examining the changing industrial nature of the Spanish town of Bilbao.
