First exhibition at the Heong Gallery
Generation Painting 1955-65
British Art from the Collection of Sir Alan Bowness
6 February – 22 May 2016
The gallery has opened with an exhibition of works from the private collection of Sir Alan Bowness, former Director of Tate and an alumnus of Downing College. Generation Painting 1955-65: British Art from the Collection of Sir Alan Bowness features works by an array of significant mid-twentieth-century British artists including major works by Patrick Heron, Allen Jones, Peter Lanyon and William Scott. It is the first time these rarely seen works will be displayed together, and the exhibition draws links between Bowness’ collection and his long career in the arts.
The exhibition is curated by Rachel Rose Smith.
