Save Event: Exchanges

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


Exchanges sets art and artists together, sometimes in harmony, sometimes in opposition – always with insight and intention.


Works by Gillian Wearing, William Hogarth and Louise Bourgious and Tracey Emin encourage dialogue about expectations of female behavior. Rebecca Warren and Hayley Tompkins elevate discarded objects to the status of art and challenge our ideas about what should be shown in museums. While Simon Patterson, Jitish Kallat, Roni Horn and Stephen Willats consider how we make order out of a disordered world.

Over the next year some of this art will be exchanged for our most recent acquisitions activating new dialogues between the works displayed.
