One Love - Celebrating The Life Of Bob Marley
Throughout the run of One Love: The Bob Marley Musical we'll be celebrating the life of the global music icon through a free public exhibition.
The One Love Exhibition, our largest to date, will spread across all our public spaces, including the main foyer of the Library of Birmingham. It includes archive photography of Bob Marley and Jamaican culture, original designs from the annual International Reggae Competition plus newly created artwork from Birmingham City University's Visual Communications students.
The photographic exhibition in the Library of Birmingham's main foyer includes archive photos of Bob Marley from the 1970s plus a vibrant collection of images of Jamaican life and culture. Elsewhere in the Library of Birmingham there are books, recordings and films about Bob Marley, his life and legacy for anyone wishing to learn more.
The One Love Exhibition continues across The REP's foyer and mezzanine levels with a range of beautiful original designs created by artists from across the world in response to the annual International Reggae Poster Competition which celebrates reggae music and culture.
The exhibition also encompasses creative responses to the title 'One Love: The Bob Marley Musical', by Visual Communication students at Birmingham City University portraying the spirit of reggae music through a variety of media.
Paul Reece, Head of Marketing and Communications at The REP said:
Our One Love exhibition is for everyone. From beautiful archive photos of Bob Marley to the vibrant designs of the International Reggae Poster competition the exhibition will give visitors and audiences a chance to see another side of Bob Marley, his life and his influence on art and culture.
One Love: The Bob Marley Musical runs 10 March to 15 April
The One Love Exhibition is FREE of charge and runs up until the 17 April.
