Present Tense

Swindon Museum and Art Gallery hosts a new exhibition showcasing contemporary painting and photography - UNTIL 18 APRIL
 
Swindon Museum and Art Gallery, Swindon
Until 18 April 2015
 
The exhibition ‘Present Tense’ showcases contemporary painting and photography and includes works by Lisa Milroy, Steven Pippin, Magnus Quaife, Jefferey Camp and Robert Priseman.
 
Starting with the fall of the Berlin Wall and looking at history and society, the exhibition investigates the way artists continue to react to the world around them and create new realities.
 
The exhibition features Steven Pippin’s Turner Prize nominated series ‘Walking Naked (Laundromat Locomotion). Robert Priseman’s ‘Home’ series, a group of 6 small and elaborately framed paintings showing houses where notorious crimes have taken place, will be exhibited for the first time in the gallery. The museum will also be displaying Magnus Quaife’s “1969 and Other Myths”, recently presented to Swindon by the Contemporary Art Society.
Entry: FREE
