Legacies:  JMW Turner and contemporary art practice exhibition

Until 14 January 2018

 

A master of history, landscape and marine painting, Joseph Mallord William Turner (1775-1851) challenged accepted conventions in art, often shocking his contemporaries with his techniques and candid portrayal of the modern world.

 

Legacies  considers the impact of JMW Turner through the lens of contemporary art, highlighting the ongoing relevance of his work for artists practising today.
