Discoveries are made through making... 

The Ingram Collection and The University of Gloucestershire (UoG) present Material Thinking, featuring works from exciting contemporary artists like Olivia Bax, Andrew Bick and Richard Billingham alongside influential modern works by Barbara Hepworth, Eduardo Paolozzi, Elisabeth Frink and more.

Comprised of over 50 pieces in mediums ranging from sculpture, painting and prints, to photography, film and installation, Material Thinking explores The Ingram Collection as a historic context for artists working today. It seeks to open new conversations with artists who use varied, unusual, or unexpected materials and methods to share a better understanding of what it is to make things, between disciplines and across generations. 

Curator Professor Angus Pryor’s selections from The Ingram Collection have been chosen in response to artists associated with UoG’s innovative Fine Art programme who share a practice-led approach where discoveries are made through making, treating materials as active participants in the artistic process.

Book here for the Material Thinking Symposium on Friday 13 September 2024, 2pm - 5.30pm.
