Strong Rooms is a touring installation that explores archives through the eyes of the artist. The installation was open to the public for a limited run in Rugby, Coventry, Dudley and Worcester throughout summer 2016. Artist Mohammed Ali curated the Strong Rooms, bringing together a team of artists, bringing the archives to life, bringing new meaning to the past.
