This exhibition explores 6 artists re-engagement with their historical (pre-20th century) precursors, by looking at how they utilise, transform and re-imagine specific artworks, from a previous artistic era. The show complements Andrew Bracey’s exhibition in the Long Gallery upstairs, creating further conversations and lineages between contemporary and historical artists. Re-unpacking seeks to explore how artists are continually learning from the art of the past, mining it for inspiration in order to put back into the world something new from something already existing. The aim is to show how (familiar) works of the past can become unfamiliar by their use as content by contemporary Artists and to re-invoke and re-contextualise the cliché of how ‘one must learn from the past’.Press release Jenny Wiener
