New Works: Cultivating the Collection
[ Exhibition )
Come and explore an exciting selection of recent acquisitions, including many works from contemporary artists.
Over the past 40 years we have brought together a significant collection of almost 5,000 paintings, sculptures and works on paper, thanks to the generosity of those who have made gifts or supported acquisitions.
New Works: Cultivating the Collection presents exciting recent highlights from a broad range of influential contemporary artists, including drawings by Shirazeh Houshiary and Tony Cragg, prints by Lubaina Himid, Colin Self and Joe Tilson and sculptures by Helaine Blumenfeld and Eilis O’Connell. Together these works will explore language and mythology, the relationship between art and architecture, and the treatment of light and space.
On view at the Gallery for the first time, New Works is drawn from two major recent additions to the collection: forty five maquettes and preparatory drawings from the Cass Sculpture Archive, acquired with support from Art Fund, John Booth and John Ayton MBE in 2019, and a gift of 120 works on paper presented by Cristea Roberts Gallery in 2021.
