Glenn Brown (solo show)
Laing Art Gallery, Newcastle
16 June - 21 October 2018

In 2017, the Laing Art Gallery was the first recipient of the Contemporary Art Society’s ‘Great Works’ scheme. A spectacular work by Glenn Brown was gifted to the collection, and this exhibition will continue to build on the Laing's relationship with the artist.

Glenn Brown was born in nearby Hexham and is one of the most renowned British artists working today. Known for the use of art historical references in his paintings, Brown appropriates images changing their shape, form, colour, and dimension, traversing artistic time zones from the Renaissance, Baroque and Rococo through to Impressionism, Expressionism and Surrealism and referencing artists such as Jean Louis Fragonard, Salvador Dalí and John Martin - who was also born in the north east.

This exhibition will feature new works created by Brown, shown alongside his own rehang of the Laing’s painting collection. Curated by the artist, together with Julie Milne, Chief Curator of the Laing, and generously supported by the Friends of the Laing Art Gallery.
