2020 Vision: 100 years of justice The MA's first touring art exhibition! 16 January 2020 The MA is 100 years old this year and to celebrate we are planning a touring art exhibition exploring the concept of justice, titled 2020 Vision: 100 years of justice. The exhibition will be based on 20 original artworks, commissioned from 20 diverse, contemporary artists and will travel to four cities: Manchester, Birmingham, Cardiff and London. The exhibition will be both a retrospective view of 100 years of the history of justice in the UK and a gaze into the future, underpinned by interactive workshops delivered by the artists, MIC presentations delivered by MA branches and talks from a range of experts drawn from government, academia and the third sector. Back issues of MAGISTRATE magazine chart 100 years in justice and contain a living history of the life and times of England and Wales. This has served as the inspiration for our themes, which are: Rights of the child Gender and the justice system The role of prison in society Ownership of information Race and criminal justice LGBTQIA+ rights Freedom of expression Freedom of association Victims’ rights The concept of justice The project will comprise three parts: The last 100 years: artwork by 10 artists, inspired by the themes above, exploring key developments of the last century. The next 100 years: 10 artists showcasing their visions for the future of justice, inspired by the themes above. The present: interactive, participatory workshops, talks and MIC presentations, delivered by artists, magistrates and experts from government and the third sector.
