Event description
The five artists will discuss and answer questions about the work in the exhibition, with a reading by poet Harriet Tarlo

About this event

Artists Trevor Burgess, Jonathan Hooper, Mandy Payne, Narbi Price and Judith Tucker and poet Harriet Tarlo will be present to discuss and answer questions about the Where We Live exhibition at Alan Baxter Gallery

Further details to be confirmed.

Where We Live is an artist-curated exhibition of paintings that explore overlooked and under-regarded aspects of England today. Five artists give intense scrutiny to five locations across England in paintings that offer a concentrated and often critical perspective on the country's social landscape at a time of profound political and social change.

* the all-but-erased history of post-industrial mining villages in Northumberland

* a large-scale housing estate in Sheffield in transition to luxury flats

* bringing a modernist colour perspective to bear on depicting residential architecture in Leeds

* contested coastal chalet plotlands in North Lincolnshire, whose history goes back to the 1930s

* recovering everyday urban experience of the street and the notion of home from the commodification of the London property market

Where We Live has been initiated by Trevor Burgess, whose collaborative projects as an artist-curator explore the contemporary practice of painting and its social context. The London launch at Alan Baxter Gallery will be followed by a national tour, opening at the Millennium Gallery, Sheffield Museums on Saturday 15 January 2022.
