What's On


Ingrid Pollard - Research Commission in Devon

6 August 2022 to 29 October 2022

Ingrid Pollard is a leading artist and photographer working in Britain today. 

Her contributions to art over the past 40 years have broken new ground and forged pathways for younger generations, shaping Britain's understanding and histories of art, society and culture. 

This solo exhibition sees Pollard create a new series of work in response to the histories of Devon and the South West. Through her photographic research and practice into nature, Pollard explores narratives of people and places across industry, labour and individual experiences, which has shaped our stories and landscapes. 

This exhibition is curated by talking on corners and THG. It is part of a wider project focused on the work of Ingrid Pollard, in collaboration with Devon and Exeter Institution, Libraries Unlimited, and the Arts & Culture and Geography departments at the University of Exeter.

Look out for a wide-ranging programme of events throughout the year including workshops with Pollard, local and national creative practitioners, artist and academic talks, and a symposium.
