Sky News is hosting a month long exhibition in association with Somerset House early next year that will take a look at three of the major stories of 2011; the Arab Spring, the Libyan conflict, and the London riots.
The multimedia exhibition will offer an insight into the editorial, political and human aspects of these events. The walls of the gallery will feature stills and original Sky News video, and visitors will also be able to browse content on iPads featuring background interviews with the people who worked on these stories as well as timelines, maps and photo galleries.
In addition, a special installation will focus on coverage of the death of Colonel Gaddafi and highlight the issues facing news organisations in authenticating and broadcasting often deeply disturbing images to the public.
Any interested students or lecturers can visit the exhibition between Thursday, 12January and Sunday, 5 February at Somerset House’s Embankment Galleries. The exhibition is free to attend.
