The Places We Go

Curated by Alexandra Baraitser and Julie Fountain PV 15th October 6 - 8pm

We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time
— Little Gidding, Four Quartets - T.S. Eliot (1943)

The physical process of wandering enables us to draw in information as we move from site to site. However The Places We Go is as much about looking inward (searching what we conceptualise as a “space within”) as looking outward, as the borders between material space and internal space are often blurred. One of the ways a painter learns about life is to explore it: the artists in this exhibition eloquently capture the moment of returning to the start and finding something new in the familiar.

This exhibition of paintings brings together a wide range of work focusing on the particularities of place, whether unknown or known, that are available in human experience.
