Representing Law Exhibition – Call for Delegate Submissions

As part of the ‘Representing Law’ Research Committee on the Sociology of Law (RCSL) Conference at Bangor University 3-6 September, we are hosting an exhibition on the theme of Representing Law, for conference delegates as well as local artists.  This will be a photography exhibition of submissions from delegates – deadline 30 June 2024 – as well as mixture of works of different media from the local community.

The exhibition will take place in Bangor Pontio Arts and Innovation Centre, from 3-29 September.

For delegates, we would like to encourage those coming to the conference to submit an image for which they feel talks to the theme ‘representing law’.  This could be an obvious reference to some of law’s more common motifs such as scales, Lady Justice, the police, protests, the prison, etc. to something more abstract and personal that may give an ‘affect’ of law, which may speak to your work, criminological and legal theory, and concerns of social justice more broadly.

We invite photographic submissions via Jpeg images below, with a title and brief summary as to why this has been chosen.  Photography has been chosen as a specific media for ease of installation and de-install for works of delegates not based in Bangor, and with a clear form of legal representation through the power of the image.  The images will be printed and displayed as part of the exhibition using the photographs provided.

The deadline is 30 June 2024.  Please send any queries regarding the exhibition to Lucy Finchett-Maddock ( or any other queries to the conference team more broadly.

We look forward to receiving your contributions!
