The 2021 Model Art Gallery
A microcosm of British art today featuring new works created in 2020 by 34 contemporary artists.
Featuring sculpture by Julian Opie, ceramics by Grayson Perry and Edmund de Waal, photographs by Gillian Wearing, paintings by Damien Hirst, Maggi Hambling and Tacita Dean and an installation by John Akomfrah – all ranging from the size of a pound coin to no larger than 20cm. The Gallery will also feature a miniature print from Khadija Saye’s ‘Crown’ series, the only work from the series not destroyed in the Grenfell Tower fire which took her life.
The 2021 Model Art Gallery has been designed by Wright & Wright architects who are working with Pallant House Gallery on proposals for a new Collections Centre, and recently redesigned the new Museum of the Home in Hackney.
The 2021 Model Art Gallery will be displayed alongside two earlier model galleries – The Thirty Four Gallery and The Model Gallery 2000. Together, the galleries tell the story of Modern British art from the 1930s until today.
