An exhibition of work by Preston’s Turner Prize winning artist has been reopened to the public.

Lubaina Himid’s Hard Times work was closed off to visitors to the Harris Museum and Art Gallery after a leak was discovered coming from the grade-I listed building’s roof.

It’s taken a month for the maintenance work to be undertaken.

The Harris reopened the exhibition on the afternoon of Friday (13 April).

The exhibition features Himid’s latest work from 2012 Moments That Matter.
