‘The art of remembering’
The exhibition I am part of at the Rheged centre in the Lake District starts today. It runs from the 20th September until the 23rd November and will open every day from 10.30am till 4.30pm. ‘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 12 British 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.’ Running alongside the exhibition is a programme of talks, films and events surrounding the themes of remembering and World War One. http://rheged.com/art-remembering
