Join curator, Aziz Sohail and Head of Exhibitions, Deborah Robinson for a tour of The Humble Vessel exhibition.


Throughout history, artists have looked to boats and the sea as subject matter, sometimes romantically, yet oftern addressing issues around migration, loss, absence, struggle and hope. Today, the subjects seem particularly relevant as images of migrants, attempting to cross into the relative safety of Europe, flash across our TV screens.

The exhibition features a newly commissioned film work by Pakistani artist Fazal Rizvi, which explores multiple narratives around the sea, shifting between fiction and reality. This work is shown alongside both contemporary and historic works from the British Council Collection and The New Art Gallery Walsall's collections.
