British Art Show 7 unveils line-up

27th April 2010

Works by some of the UK's leading artists are set to be showcased across the country in the latest British Art Show 7.

The roadshow will take contemporary works of art, including painting, drawing, sculpture, installation, photography, film, video and performance, to venues in Nottingham, London, Glasgow and Plymouth.

Among the 39 artists exhibiting are former Young British Artist Sarah Lucas, painter Phoebe Urwin, sculptor Mick Peter and collaborative filmmakers Anja Kirschner and David Panos.

The exhibition is subtitled In the Days of the Comet - taken from H.G. Wells' 1906 science fiction novel of the same name and used to show how 'each version of the present collides with the past and the future'.

Ralph Rugoff, director of the Hayward Gallery, which will host the event's London leg, added: 'The British Art Show has always been at the forefront of innovation and this incarnation is no exception.'

The last show, which was held in 2005, featured pieces by installation artist Enrico David, Uganda-born filmmaker Zarina Bhimji and video artist Marcus Coates.
