A celebration of artworks featuring books and readers from throughout history, for the delight of art lovers and bibliophiles.

About

As every book tells a story, every book in art is part of an intriguing, engaging, and relatable image. Books are depicted as indicators of intellect in portraits, as symbols of piety in religious paintings, as subjects in still lifes, and as the raw material for contemporary installations.

Reading Art spotlights a variety of artworks from local northern collections creating a gorgeous, inspiring homage to both the written word and to its pivotal role in the visual world.

As a family friendly exhibition, come and read in our book corner and sample under 5’s interactives.

Co-curated by Rebecca Morrill (Commissioning Editor (Art) - Phaidon).
