Received Wisdom is 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’?
In the first of our brand-new series of Arts Council Collection National Partner exhibitions, 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.
Whilst the exhibition is currently closed, you can still explore the exhibition digitally!
