Where We Live brings together paintings by Trevor Burgess, Jonathan Hooper, Mandy Payne, Narbi Price and Judith Tucker to examine overlooked and under-regarded aspects of the landscape we inhabit today.

Presenting five locations across England, the works on display interrogate the social landscape of England at a time of profound political and social change.

Each series of paintings offers the viewer multiple perspectives on the notion of home and our sense of place. Tensions in the images between legacies of the past, the reality of the present and often conflicting visions of the future are layered with poetic texts foregrounding the voices of the residents.

Where We Live has been initiated by Trevor Burgess, whose collaborative projects as an artist-curator explore the contemporary practice of painting and its social context. The exhibition launched at Alan Baxter Gallery, London in autumn 2021 and is touring nationally to Sheffield, Great Yarmouth, Nottingham and Newcastle through 2022 and 2023.
