GENERATIONS brings together the work of twelve British and UK-based artists who explore cherished memories and difficult histories.

Curated by The Courtauld Institute of Art's MA Curating the Art Museum students. Works selected form the Arts Council Collection.

About

What is our relationship to past and future generations?

Baby boomers, millennials, first and second generation immigrants: we are obsessed with what makes one group different from the last. But the connections we make with other generations are often just as important as those we make with our own.

GENERATIONS: Connecting Across Time and Place brings together the work of twelve British and UK-based artists who explore cherished memories and difficult histories. Some artists look to the stories, memories and genes we inherit from our families. Others interrogate the continuing legacies of historical figures and events. GENERATIONS questions how personal and political pasts can bring us together - or pull us apart.
