> DESCRIPTION

On the occasion of the Leeds Art Fund Centenary this display draws on the gallery’s rich collections, exploring the revision of the landscape tradition in British art throughout the last century and the meaning of that tradition for artists today.

Contested Ground explores the revision of the landscape tradition in British art throughout the last century, and the meaning of that tradition for artists today. Drawing on the Gallery’s rich collections, this exhibition presents key works by pioneers of Modernism in England, from Paul Nash and Ben Nicholson to Barbara Hepworth and Peter Lanyon, alongside more recent experiments with landscape by artists including Richard Long, Boyle Family, and Clare Woods.

Curated by Debra Lennard, the 2012 recipient of the Contemporary Art Society’s annual Starting Point
Curatorial Fellowship for graduate curators.
