One of Tokaido Road‘s ancillary projects is the #walkSwaleMedway exhibition at the Colyer-Fergusson Gallery at the University of Kent, which opens on Friday 17 April as part of the events leading up to the performance of the chamber opera at the Gulbenkian Theatre in May.

WSM_06The exhibition, the first of two at Colyer-Fergusson, is a response by the Kent-based artist, Hope Fitzgerald, and explores similar ideas of journeying and of travel to Hiroshige’s series of prints with from a uniquely Kent perspective. The exhibition will run from 17 April to 1 May; admission is free.

Hope talks about the exhibition and the ideas behind her project over on the University of Kent’s Music department blog here.
