To mark this special occasion, we are bringing together works of contemporary art collected over the last 20 years, many from artists who have featured in our exhibitions programme. Works span a wide range of media and scale. We have selected international artists as well as those closer to home and from across the country. Themes explored include the changing urban landscape, the Black Country, the impact of globalisation and people and places. We also acknowledge significant gifts and schemes which have enriched the collections, such as the Contemporary Art Society Special Collection Scheme and Art Fund.
Participating artists include Mohamed Bourouissa, Lee Bul, Ruth Claxton, Martin Creed, Adam Dant, Rita Donagh, Brian Griffin, Romuald Hazoume, Mahtab Hussain, Andrew Jackson, Martin Parr, Mark Power, Juneau Projects, Hew Locke, David Shrigley, Dayanita Singh, Soheila Sokhanvari, Andrew Tift, Grazia Toderi, The Singh Twins and Stuart Whipps.
