Refuge and Renewal

Migration and British Art

14 March to 06 June 2020
Pulpit Room, Owen Owen Gallery, Bridge & Tannery

This exhibition looks at how artist refugees have affected art in Britain. With a focus on émigrés from Nazi Europe and some of the British artists they influenced, it also looks back to the Franco-Prussian War and the First World War and forward to present-day artists from the Middle East.
Loans from major public and private collections make this one of MOMA’s most ambitious ever exhibitions. Artists include Camille and Lucien Pissarro, W. R. Sickert, Valerius de Saedeleer, Naum Gabo, Kurt Schwitters, Barbara Hepworth, Ben Nicholson, Peter Lanyon, Josef Herman, Heinz Koppel, Josef Koudelka, Samira Kitman and Mona Hatoum.
In collaboration with the Royal West of England Academy, curated by Peter Wakelin. Supported by The Richard and Ann Mayou Fund.
An accompanying book is published by Sansom.
