Drawn from the Gallery’s contemporary collection, this exhibition contemplates how artists respond to history and the world we inhabit. Portals & Omens: New Work from the Collection tracks artistic practice from home and across the globe with concepts of history and dystopia–an opulent and troubled culture of nature, time and language. Many of the works were made or acquired for the collection during the Covid-19 pandemic and, like Ryan Gander’s small mouse and Berlinde De Bruyckere’s archangel, ask that art reveals a common spirit or the importance of imaginary spaces.
