Art from Elsewhere opens at Towner on January 23 and runs until April 3.

This show comprises 45 works by 26 of today’s most influential artists including Mohammed Bourouissa, Jenny Holzer, Peter Hujar, Imran Qureshi, Józef Robakowski, Robert Smithson, Nancy Spero and Kara Walker. The wide range of global themes explored in the show - migration, identity, colonialism, gender, censorship, territory, communications, class – are reflected in the diversity of media used by the artists, from photography, drawing to Super 8 film, sound and video projections, sculpture and installation works.

Curated by David Elliott, all the works in Art from Elsewhere are drawn from the collections of six museums across the UK which were re­cently awarded over £4 million by the Art Fund to build collections of international contemporary art through Art Fund International
