A National Partners Programme exhibition from the Arts Council Collection, curated by Jennifer Higgie.
One Day Something Happens explores the everyday theatricality of the body. The artists in this exhibition approach figuration in very different ways and the people they depict are both imaginary characters and real people. Jennifer Higgie’s fascinating selection of works from the Arts Council Collection, as well as works from Towner’s Collection, teases out common themes across the decades: work, introspection and individuality, joy and loneliness. Featuring works by artists ranging from Walter Sickert, Lucien Freud and David Hockney to Rose Wylie, Steven Claydon and Lynette Yiadom-Boakye.
One Day Something Happens is the first in a series of exhibitions curated from the Arts Council Collection as part of the National Partners
