Sea of Hull Survey
In July 2016, 3200 brave volunteers stripped naked, painted themselves blue and posed around Hull for the ‘Sea of Hull’. The striking images created that day are on display until 13th August at the Ferens Art Gallery.
The gallery has purchased three works from ‘Sea of Hull’ as part of the commission. In addition to these, the gallery want the people of Hull and art lovers everywhere to choose a fourth photograph by popular vote -
