2015 Exhibitions

New Art West Midlands

Chrysophobia #3, Alexandra Darby, 2014


Monday, 16 March to Sunday, 22 March 2015


Barber Institute of Fine Arts



Voyeurism, idolatry, the transience of life and orange-phobia are among the diverse subjects and themes explored in this year’s New Art West Midlands.

Created in a wide range of media – including oil, acrylic, photography, found objects, textiles and boiled sweets – this multi-site, selective award exhibition showcases work by emerging local artists. The third in a collaborative annual series, New Art West Midlands 2015 presents some of the best, critically engaged work by recent graduates from the five West Midlands university art schools. Works are displayed in the dedicated exhibition space and as thought-provoking interventions among the Barber’s permanent collection.
