This exhibition places the work of artist Rebecca Chesney in dialogue with a selection of pieces from the Arts Council Collection.
Chesney’s practice explores and challenges traditional depictions of landscape, often revealing the social, political and environmental issues at the heart of our relationships with nature.
The pieces from the Arts Council Collection represent a wide range of approaches to landscape and the environment in art from the 1950s to today.
Together, the works in this exhibition generate new conversations about how we romanticise, manage, define, and live in landscapes. Ultimately, it asks the important question: What is the future for our landscapes?
Featuring the work of: Roger Ackling, John Blakemore, Boyd and Evans, Patrick Caulfield, Bob Chaplin, Rebecca Chesney, Joshua Compston, Guy Heatherington, Mariele Neudecker Eduardo Paolozzi, Victor Passmore, Ray Smith, Susan Tragmar.
