Loans from major public and private collections make this one of MOMA’s most ambitious ever exhibitions. Artists include Camille and Lucien Pissarro, W. R. Sickert, Valerius de Saedeleer, Naum Gabo, Kurt Schwitters, Barbara Hepworth, Ben Nicholson, Peter Lanyon, Josef Herman, Heinz Koppel, Josef Koudelka, Samira Kitman and Mona Hatoum.
 
In collaboration with the Royal West of England Academy, curated by Peter Wakelin. Supported by The Richard and Ann Mayou Fund. An accompanying book is published by Sansom.

DANIEL TRIVEDY : WELSH EMERGENCY BLANKET
Mar 14 - Jun 6, 2020 FINAL WEEK
Running concurrently to the 'Refuge and Renewal' exhibition, Daniel Trivedy’s 'Welsh Emergency Blanket' is an ongoing series of work that responds to the proposal for Wales to become the first Nation of Sanctuary, bringing two visual elements and their associations together. The first element draws on the distinctive pattern of Welsh blankets, the second is the gold emergency blanket commonly seen in documentary photography, relating to refugee camps.
