About

FOUND brings together important works by a group of contemporary artists who work with found images. Transforming , cutting, or re-interpreting visual material sourced from the internet, magazines, old books, anonymous family albums and personal collections, the artists explore themes of loss, memorialisation, collective experience, and socially-constructed hierarchies concerning gender, race, religion, history and mass culture. Drawing attention to our relentless consumption and self-projection of visual information in a digital age, the selected works reverberate and bring into question the feeling of being suffocated and framed by representations of other people's lives, tastes and experiences.

FOUND includes in-depth presentations of work by Paul Chiappe, Vesna Pavlovià„‡, John Stezaker, Ruth Claxton and Ellen Gallagher and features new work specially commissioned by The New Art Gallery Walsall.
