Simulacra: Keeping it Real
A Mead Gallery Exhibition with the Arts Council Collection
Thu 14 Oct – Sat 6 Nov 1999
Simulacra examines the work of a generation of artists born in the 1960s. The established art practice of that period was dominated by American influenced abstract painting, seen in the exhibition in the adjacent galleries. Some thirty years later, artists such as Christine Borland, Damien Hirst and Tania Kovats are international figures themselves. Their work is overtly thoughtful and draws on the day-to-day environment experienced by the viewer.
