Richard Reddaway – the body of the work / it does no harm to wonder


The exhibition surveys Richard Reddaway’s work from the 1980s to his current practice, exploring enduring themes and tracking them in relation to the socio-political contexts in which they were made.

It is the artist’s first survey exhibition and includes sculpture from the mid-1980s, photo-montages from the 1990s, recent sculptural objects and new collaborative work.
