Work selected for exhibition at Rheged Centre, Penrith
July 21, 2014
This new work will be travelling up to the Rheged Centre, Penrith, Cumbria for an exhibition entitled
The Art of Remembering
20 Sep 2014 – 23 Nov 2014
The Art of Remembering is a new contemporary art exhibition supported by Arts Council England and the Heritage Lottery Fund, and developed by Rheged. It asks what emotional connection remains to the First World War, and looks at how we have memorialised the conflict over the past 100 years. The exhibition features new work by artists selected from a national call out and it includes four new artworks commissioned by Rheged especially for the occasion. The Art of Remembering asks questions about how we remember events collectively, and re-evaluate our moral and patriotic attitudes over time.
