Sally Burton - Pale History / 17 June - 25 July 2021

  • Burton draws our attention to history as an unfixed story. Some events are lost to time, motivations are often unknowable. The history we are told is often a biased, paler version of reality – which is confusing, messy and uncontainable. Burton’s strength is her uncompromised approach to interpreting the best and worst of our Pale History.
