Refuge: The Art of Belonging

Friday 15 February 2019Saturday 29 June 2019

Exhibition focusing on artists who entered Britain as a result of Nazi occupation. The exhibition is part of Insiders/Outsiders, nationwide arts festival taking place throughout 2019 to celebrate refugees from Nazi Europe and their contribution to British culture. The show features works by Kurt Schwitters, Hilde Goldschmidt, Hans Coper, Lucie Rie, Lucian Freud, Frank Auerbach and Martin Bloch. In particular, the gallery has focused on the work of two artists who came to the Lake District during the Second World War: Hilde Goldschmidt (1897-1980), a successful Expressionist artist, and Kurt Schwitters (1887-1948) who is widely recognised as one of the most influential artists of the 20th century.
