MIGRATIONS:
Time - Place - Culture

This eclectic display of art works by British, French and South African artists invites viewers to explore a range of narratives around the history of painting, the history of migrations and the geography of time and place. Among the art works rehung in this context are two South African landscape paintings, Tenement by Gavin Anderson, and Drakensberg Arabesque by Jack Heath, that suggest very different spaces, one urban,  the other rural. In both paintings, media, mark, tone and colour are used to explore abstract visual representations of spatial experiences.
