Coventry Editorial 1st Jan, 2024   0

CURATORS at Coventry’s Herbert Art Gallery and Museum have revealed parts of its new year cultural calendar by announcing three new exhibitions which are arriving in the first half of 2024.

For the first time since lockdown, the CASE: Coventry Art Societies Exhibition will return and will see the works of around 75 local artists showcased from February 2 to March 3.

Acclaimed photographer, writer and broadcaster Johny Pitts will bring After the End of History: Contemporary Working Class Photography 1989 – 2024, to the Herbert for the first leg of its three-location tour between March 29 and June 16.

The work will explore the challenges, beauty and diversity of contemporary working-class life and mark 35 years since the fall of the Berlin Wall, the weakening of the Soviet Union and the symbolic end of Communism.

And ‘Collecting Coventry’, which will kick off on May 10, will bring together works and artefacts from the Herbert’s collections including paintings and natural sciences.
