Daily Tour: Nashashibi/Skaer: Thinking Through Other Artists

Join our gallery team for an informal tour of our current exhibition Nashashibi/Skaer: Thinking Through Other Artists.

This exhibition combines films made by Rosalind Nashashibi and Lucy Skaer with their personal selection of historic and contemporary art that reflects on and adds new meaning to their work.

Alongside their individual practices, British artists Rosalind Nashashibi and Lucy Skaer have been collaborating as Nashashibi/Skaer since 2005. Their artworks – mostly made using 16mm film – explore a range of ideas through art, artists, people and places.

Nashashibi/Skaer have treated the process of exhibition-making as if they were creating an artwork. Each of their five films on display becomes a starting point to explore key ideas that resonate across the exhibition, from the portrayal of women and the representation of global cultures to issues around political conflict.

Featured artists include Paul Gauguin, Henri Matisse, Paul Nash, Pierre Bonnard, Louise Bourgeois, Jo Spence, Lee Miller, Gauri Gill and Rossella Biscotti.
