People who have saved this event:



Curated by artist Chris Stevens, REALITY brings together over fifty works celebrating the strength of British painting with some of the best and most influential artists of the last sixty years. Major 20th Century artists are represented such as Walter Sickert, Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud and David Hockney, alongside contemporary painters including Ken Currie, George Shaw and Caroline Walker. The artists in REALITY tackle a diverse range of subjects, referencing the body, relationships, history, politics, war, the urban environment and social issues. Despite these different references, the works are all united by two things — the harsh realities that have concerned key British artists over the decades and the simple act of painting.
