Opening the Door: Discovering Durham University’s Western Art Collection

30 September – 6 November 2016 

Oriental Museum 

Durham University houses a significant collection of 20th and 21st century western art. Featuring prints by artists such as Picasso, Andy Warhol, Elizabeth Frink, Eric Gill and Paula Rego, this exhibition formed part of the North East International Print Biennale and investigated different printing methods. 

Three monochrome downward facing triangles are stacked above one another vertically in the centre of the artwork. Each triangle contains a different illustration.
