About

Join us at our free preview event on Friday 9 October, 6.00-8.00pm. Free; no need to book. All welcome.

STOP PRESS: Curator and writer David Elliott will be talking about the exhibition at 4.30pm.  Tickets are free but booking is essential through Eventbrite or by phoning 01772 905414.

The exhibition addresses topical issues such as migration, trade and exchange, social tensions, life in conflict zones and failed ideas of utopia are addressed. Experience both the familiar and the new through a wide variety of painting, sculpture, installation, video and photography. 

Don’t miss Barbara Kruger’s graphic-design influenced photo and text paste-up, Meschac Gaba’s colourfulBrasilian Bank installation and Yang Zhenzhong’s video installation Let’s Puff that plays with the viewer’s sense of space.

Curated by David Elliott, Art from Elsewhere is a Hayward Touring exhibition supported by the Art Fund.  It is part of the Harris Museum's Dance First, Think Later Contemporary Art Programme.
