Living With Art: An extraordinary collection from an ordinary home
Sat 9th March 2024 to Sun 12th May 2024
The Beaney — How to get here
Living with Art showcases a collection acquired over 38 years by local artist and collector Christopher Millbank.
As a Fine Art Printmaking student in the 1980s, Millbank began his extensive collection with an 1821 Japanese Woodcut by Eisen. Over 38 years his collection would grow to include works by household names such as Banksy, Damien Hirst, Grayson Perry, Paul Nash, Henry Moore, Graham Sutherland, William Scott, Victor Pasmore, Eduardo Paolozzi and many others.
To add to the depth and diversity of the exhibition’s narrative, the interpretation has been developed collaboratively between Christopher Millbank and The Beaney as well as local school children, young people and community groups. Together these different reflections will respond to the artworks on display whilst considering what it means to live with art.
Free admission, donations encouraged.
