"Illuminating the Overlooked is an exhibition at the Trowbridge Museum by Jen Hamblin, Laurence Ingram and Kati Saqui.


The exhibition features the TSCrew and Trowbridge Skateboarding archives from over the years.


Jen, Laurence and Kati came together with a shared vision to shine a light on the overlooked and to educate those that may have been unfamiliar with skateboarding and other arts in the Trowbridge community.


The exhibit explores the spaces of Trowbridge and the relationships they have with its community. The aim of the exhibition has been to validate, recover, revamp, retrieve and regain the status of past, present hidden or lost scenes and narratives of Trowbridge in a contemporary artistic way."


John Murphy of TSCrew went along to Illuminating the Overlooked's official opening and came through with this following edit, giving you all a taste of what to expect.
