Diverse Pleasures brings together a group of artists who currently live and work in the UK. The group have been drawn to each other through years of friendship and discussion, and the work in this exhibition is reflective of their shared interests.

Works in the exhibition were chosen for their individual qualities rather than their usefulness to curatorial thesis, but a notion of genre emerges as central. They play within recognised painting conventions and sub-categories, and ask to what extent all art – even all human activity and experience – is genre-defined and ‘framed’.

The show draws on many subjects and themes related to nature, spirituality, landscape, ancient artefacts, personal narrative, witchcraft and folklore.

The exhibition is located across all floors of the Alison Richard Building and information can be found in the foyer.

Please note that the exhibition is closed on weekends.
