Received Wisdom

1 February – 10 May 2020

FREE / No booking required

In the first of our brand-new series of Arts Council Collection National Partner exhibitions, we present Received Wisdom – a thought provoking exhibition that takes its title from an artwork of the same name by artist Amikam Toren which poses the question – Who is deemed ‘creative’?

Received Wisdom challenges the notion that creativity, boundary-breaking and dynamism are the preserve of youth. The exhibition presents a body of work created by artists working in their later years and challenges ideas about what is expected of us at different stages in our lives.
