The exhibitions at the People’s History Museum are always thought-provoking, and the latest offering arriving this July is no exception. Show Me the Money is a look at how the world of finance has been represented in art over the centuries. The exhibition aims to show how art has reflected people’s attitudes to money and banking, and also how it has critiqued the subject and forged new outlooks. Included are classic satirical pieces by William Hogarth and George Cruikshank, and serious works by the contemporary artists Rhiannon Williams and Carey Young. You’ll find a vast array of media, including: photographs, videos, newspaper illustrations, and adverts. This project comes with a free accompanying app and a book of essays written by noted financial commentators, which – aptly – will cost you money.
