Taking the exceptional light qualities of the historic Chapel as inspiration, this exhibition explores the condition of transparency and in so doing responds to the particular aesthetic of the 18th-century building.

Transparency is the second in a series of exhibitions from the Arts Council Collection's National Partners Programme.

More Information

The notion of transparency is extended by considering the multiple meanings of the word: from the property of transmitting light, being diaphanous and having clarity, to being free from pretense or deceit, of being readily understood, and characterised by visibility or accessibility of information. Including work by Hiraki Sawa, Garth Evans and Yelena Popova, the exhibition considers how artists have investigated subjects such as truth to material, the everyday or ordinary, and material and psychological transparency. Produced during a period when the demand for truth and transparency from politicians, corporations and other institutions has been especially evident, Transparency reflects a shifting sentiment in British culture.

This exhibition is part of the Arts Council Collection National Partners Programme supported by Arts Council England
