Edition 16: The Secret of England’s Greatness
The 16th exhibition in the HangART-7 art programme, from 9 October to 5 December, presents artists from England. It is no accident that the title “The Secret of England’s Greatness” is a little mysterious and likewise no coincidence that it relates to a famous historical painting by Thomas Jones Barker (1863, National Portrait Gallery, London) as well as to a very topical work by Twinkle Troughton (2010) that is being shown in Salzburg.
Although the British art scene today is as diverse and eclectic as ever, an artistic movement that continues a tradition that has developed over many centuries is emerging. Past and present, the connection and the differentiation of these concepts, runs through the whole exhibition.
Exhibited are works by: Liz Bailey (*1951), Oliver Bancroft (*1976), Wanda Bernardino (*1973), Melanie Carvalho (*1969), Frances Cowdry (*1987), Bruno Deroulede (*1969), Andrew Hollis (*1974), Cathy Lomax (*1963), Rebecca Stevenson (*1971), David Stockley (*1948), Diana Taylor (*1977) and Twinkle Troughton (*1978).
