About

Wolverhampton is delighted to announce the city has been chosen as the first city to host British Art Show 9, taking place in 2021.
 

The British Art Show is the largest touring exhibition of contemporary art in the UK, giving people in cities across the country the opportunity to engage with work by the most exciting artists in Britain.

From 6 March – 30 May 2021 audiences in Wolverhampton will be the first to see the exhibition, which will take place across two main venues:, Wolverhampton Art Gallery and the University of Wolverhampton's School of Art. Following Wolverhampton, the exhibition will tour to Aberdeen (3 July – 3 October 2021), Plymouth (6 November 2021 – 13 March 2022) and Manchester (6 May - 4 September 2022).

The British Art Show is widely recognised as a significant marker of recent developments in contemporary art in Britain, and British Art Show 9 will be no exception. A huge range of works by over 40 artists will be presented, engaging with many of the most urgent issues of our times, including the environmental crisis, identity and belonging, conflict resolution and healing.

The exhibition is curated by internationally respected curators Irene Aristizábal and Hammad Nasar and is produced by Hayward Gallery Touring, in collaboration with curators at each of the host cities.

The list of artists features:

Hurvin Anderson, Michael Armitage, Simeon Barclay, Oliver Beer, Zach Blas, Kathrin Böhm, Maeve Brennan, James Bridle, Helen Cammock, Than Hussein Clark, Cooking Sections (Alon Schwabe & Daniel Fernández Pascual), Jamie Crewe, Oona Doherty, Sean Edwards, Mandy El-Sayegh, Mark Essen, Gaika, Beatrice Gibson, Patrick Goddard, Anne Hardy, Celia Hempton, Andy Holden, Joey Holder, Marguerite Humeau, Lawrence Lek, Ghislaine Leung, Paul Maheke, Elaine Mitchener, Oscar Murillo, Grace Ndiritu, Uriel Orlow, Hardeep Pandhal, Hetain Patel, Florence Peake, Heather Phillipson, Joanna Piotrowska, Abigail Reynolds, Margaret Salmon, Hrair Sarkissian, Katie Schwab, Tai Shani, Marianna Simnett, Victoria Sin, Hanna Tuulikki, Caroline Walker, Alberta Whittle, Rehana Zaman.
