Twenty Southampton artists will explore the city's archaeological past in a new exhibition.

Following a successful first exhibition in 2023 by the ZING collective, this year the networking group for artists with connections to Southampton, is to bring more artists and ideas together in the heart of the city.

Contemporary art exhibition Material Remains will fill part of Guildhall Square with work by local visual artists from the collective between April 26 and 28.

Sparked by an ongoing project where ZING artists are working with Southampton Cultural Services, the exhibition will present a conceptually explorative visual journey into themes surrounding archaeology.

Artists have been able to explore the collection of thousands of everyday items discovered in the city and uncover stories about their potential owners.

This new collection of work will be displayed in and around repurposed shipping containers in Guildhall Square and is free and open to all to attend. The exhibition will include artworks in textiles, print, mixed media sculpture, painting, photography, crochet and more.
