Double-take, Exploring contemporary art
May 3, 2014 - June 21, 2014
The first exhibition for preSENSE is Double Take by guest curator Helen Brown and launches on 3rd May running until the 21st June. Double Take highlights one of the key collections in the Young Gallery, the collection of contemporary art from the 1960s onwards which includes work by some of Britain’s leading artists. It puts two works together exploring their similarities and differences. Come and see if you agree with us or have a go at making your own pairing from the cards provided. The exhibition provides a unique opportunity for visitors who will be able to select their own pairing and share their thoughts.
Double Take includes work by Gillian Ayres, Richard Wentworth, Susan Hiller, photographer Fay Godwin and sculptor Peter Randall-Page. It includes some of the earliest contemporary work acquired for the collection such as Howard Hodgkin’s All alone at the museum of contemporary art as well as its most recent acquisition Carbon Cleaving by Emma McNally which explores an imagined landscape of trails and trackways.
