As reported by Artmag in March, the ninth edition of the British Art Show, the UK’s biggest touring exhibition of contemporary art which takes place every five years in four cities around the UK, kicks off at Aberdeen Art Gallery, introducing a wide public to a new generation of British artists or artists practising in Britain. Comprising new commissions and recent works not previously been seen in Britain, this edition explores three main themes: healing, care and reparative history; tactics for togetherness; and imagining new futures. While they were devised prior to the pandemic and global recognition of racial injustice, they have become even more relevant. Organised by Hayward Gallery Touring/Southbank Centre, the tour will continue in 2022 to Wolverhampton, Manchester and Plymouth.
