City of Water

About City of Water

Drawing on the Ferens’ important maritime art collection, this exhibition explores the effects of environmental change over the centuries.

This exhibition explores Hull and East Riding’s relationship with the sea and highlights 800 years of flooding in a region that exists below sea level at high tide. Themes will explore maritime work and leisure, the move from sailing to steam, exploration and Empire, wrecks, and whaling. The Ferens’ collection will be reimagined as if underwater, raising issues around Hull’s risky future and hopes of defence against the rising tides.
