Hockney to Himid - group survey exhibition

  • 13th November 2021 to 24th April 2022
  • Pallant House Gallery, Chichester, UK.

The exhibition and accompanying book chart how Britain emerged from the post-war years and thrived in the early 1960s, navigated the social changes of the 1970s and 1980s, and saw the ascendency of contemporary British art from the 1990s to the present day. From wood engravings and etchings to lithographs and screenprints, printmaking enabled artists to expand their practice and explore new creative possibilities. Showcasing a wide range of artists, styles and techniques, this exhibition celebrated the upsurge of printmaking from the 1960s to the present day. The works in the exhibition are drawn from Pallant House Gallery’s collection of over 2500 prints. The majority featured are from The Golder – Thompson Gift, the result of a unique twenty-year partnership between the gallery and collectors Mark Golder and Brian Thompson. Both Golder and Thompson are teachers who have donated over 500 works to Pallant House Gallery for the enjoyment by the broadest possible audience.
