Migration and British Art

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 Claude Monet, 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.

Curated by Peter Wakelin for MOMA Machynlleth in collaboration with the Royal West of England Academy (RWA)
Generously supported by The Richard and Ann Mayou Fund, The Lambert Family Charitable Trust and the Friends of The Tabernacle.
Part of the Insiders/Outsiders Festival (www.insidersoutsidersfestival.org), a nationwide arts festival celebrating refugees from Nazi Europe and their contribution to British culture.

A lunchtime talk by Dr Peter Wakelin will take place at 1pm on Wednesday 8 April and a seminar bringing together expert speakers to explore the themes of the exhibition will take place on Saturday 9 May.

Daniel Trivedy

Welsh Emergency Blanket

14 March to 06 June 2020
Sculpture Space

Running concurrently to the Refuge and Renewal exhibition, Daniel Trivedy’s Welsh Emergency Blanket is an ongoing series of work that responds to the proposal for Wales to become the first Nation of Sanctuary, bringing two visual elements and their associations together. The first element draws on the distinctive pattern of Welsh blankets, the second is the gold emergency blanket commonly seen in documentary photography, relating to refugee camps.
