People who have saved this event:



One of the largest international exhibitions that Abbot Hall has hosted to date, bringing together works by over 40 artists from a wide geographical spectrum - South Asia, Australia, the Middle East, Europe and the US - juxtaposing work by international contemporary artists with Abbot Hall's collection of 18th - 20th century British art. This vast geographical scope and wide historical spectrum opens up a dialogue between different locales and eras, using art as a portal to explore questions of identity and history. The exhibition uses four themes - the landscape, the everyday, the diary and the body politic - to interpret drawing in the broadest sense. This innovative show encompasses both the temporary exhibition spaces and the permanent galleries, including new site-specific commissions.
