This exhibition presents the work of four artists responding to the theme of ‘the Grand Tour’ and the period of the Enlightenment. Examining themes of tourism, class, scientific and cultural breakthroughs and seeking of knowledge, the artists reflect and consider with contemporary eyes this hugely significant period of history. Each artist presents a unique narrative of thought, whether offering a critical and contemplative view on the inequality of the Grand Tour (a pursuit reserved exclusively for the rich and privileged), the dawn of tourism and its impacts or the search of the acquisition of knowledge.
