Covering the genres of drawing, painting, ceramics and sculpture, Material Culture will bring together works by leading artists including Antony Gormley, Andy Goldsworthy, Edmund de Waal, Julian Stair, Langlands & Bell and others. From its inception, the idea of mima has attracted great interest from artists, collectors and institutions, who have responded to the way mima teases out relationships between modern and contemporary, fine art and craft, through its collecting activities. Material Culture demonstrates this interest, showcasing recent gifts to the collection from private collectors and artists as well as organisations such as the Art Fund and the Contemporary Art Society.
