IN THE CITY Exhibition tour

The exhibition IN THE CITY will tour to the East Gallery at Norwich University of the Arts in Summer 2018. The exhibition includes paintings depicting cities on four continents by Trevor Burgess, Mark Crofton Bell, Stephen Carter, Aida Rubio Gonzales, Marguerite Horner, Matthew Krishanu, Lee Maelzer, Jock McFadyen and Tanmoy Samanta. See the exhibition catalogue, with introduction by Robert Harbison, in "About the Work" on the Catalogue page.

'Burgess has brought together a varied line-up of works that reflects the breadth of urban expression in contemporary painting and challenges any perception that it is an ill-equipped medium to represent the modern world'
