Curated by Turner‑prize winning artist Grayson Perry, this exhibition features paintings, sculptures and photographs from among the Arts Council’s 8,000 piece collection.
Most of the work selected is from the period between 1945 and 1980.
Grayson Perry says the exhibition’s title, Unpopular Culture, reflects a time when art was not featured in mainstream gossip columns or newspapers.
It also expresses “a feeling that many artists then made art that could be characterised as subtle, sensitive, lyrical and quiet in contrast to today when much art can seem like shouty advertisements for concepts or personalities.”
