Level 4 Art and Design students, as part of their ‘Books and Zines’ module, visited Birmingham Museum and Art gallery to see Ryan Ganders current exhibition.
The exhibition curated and selected works from the Arts Council national collection of modern and contemporary British art, as part of the celebrations for the Arts Council Collection’s 70th anniversary. For the exhibition Gander has selected artworks which appear to be involved in the act of looking. He has presented these works so that they appear to gaze at works featuring the colour blue; a colour which is important in Gander’s work, and which for him represents the abstract ideas often found in modern and contemporary art.
