Art from Elsewhere is a major touring exhibition bringing together works that depict different realities of profound global change by some of the most influential international artists working today.

About

Focusing on socially engaged art practices in a global context, Art from Elsewhere features around 50 works by 26 internationally celebrated artists in a variety of media including works on paper, video, sculpture and painting. Common themes explored by the artists include migration, identity, colonialism, gender, censorship, territory, communications and belief systems. Highlights include works by Mohamed Bourouissa, Omer Fast, Jenny Holzer. Imran Qureshi and Józef Robakowski. The exhibition also features works by seminal figures in the history of conceptual art such as Ana Mendieta, Robert Smithson and Nancy Spero.

Curated by David Elliott, all the works in Art from Elsewhere are drawn from the collections of Towner and five museums and galleries across the UK. Elliott said, “I have selected this Hayward Touring exhibition show out of this pool with a mind to indicating how art not only continues to be a truthful and often challenging expression of our times, but also has become a way of seeing them more clearly.”
