This touring exhibition brings together key works of international contemporary art from six regional museums, acquired through an ambitious Art Fund collecting scheme.

About

Art From Elsewhere is testament to the talent and diversity of artists working across the world today. The exhibition – a collaboration with Hayward Touring – is being shown at venues across the UK, starting here at GoMA, Glasgow. The works were acquired through an Art Fund scheme that sought to enhance collections of international contemporary art at museums and galleries outside of London, of which GoMA was one of the chosen partners.

Featuring painting, sculpture, installation, video and photography, the exhibition changes from city to city in order to draw out the full range of each of the collections. Featured artists for this display include Peter Hujar, Paulo Bruscky, Ana Mendieta, Kara Walker and Amar Kanwar. Their works address an array of important topical issues; life in conflict zones, oppressive government regimes, the advent of capitalism and post colonial experiences.
