The first in a new touring exhibition traces the use of collage in British art, from the first influences of the Parisian avant-garde in the early work of Ben Nicholson and Surrealists Eileen Agar and Roland Penrose through to present day artists such as Steve Claydon, David Noonan and Idris Khan. It will include traditional collage on paper, alongside painting, sculpture, film and slide projections, all drawn from the Arts Council Collection.

It tours to The New Art Gallery, Walsall (4 May – 1 July 2012); Usher Art Gallery, Lincoln (August – October 2012) and Tullie House, Carlisle (16 March – 12 May 2013).
