RECASTING brings together works by contemporary artists who explore, embrace, or challenge the classical artistic tradition. Spanning different materials and formats – painting, sculpture, installation, video, and drawing – the exhibition takes the form of a series of interventions throughout the Cast Gallery.
Featuring Paul Allen, Matthew Darbyshire, Tom de Freston, Maggi Hambling, Paul Kindersley, Rosie O'Grady & REILLY.
