The Iconic sculpture White Koan by Liliane Lijn has returned to its original home outside Warwick Arts Centre. It was installed by the Clinical Trials Unit on the Gibbet Hill campus whilst work continued on the Arts Centre refurbishment and has now returned. Before it's arrival it was treated to a full make over with our conservator overseeing its shot-blasting, filling and repainting. It is now back in tip top condition and we hope you will agree it is looking great! The electrics and neon will be going in over the next few weeks. We hope you will come and visit it. To find out more about Liliane Lijn and White Koan we have lots of information on our artist page.
If you have some spare time tomorrow from 2 - 4 why not join us for a free event?
The Drawing Trail with artist Frances Yeung.
Frances will lead a walk around some of the sculptures on campus to share ideas about her own experience and to support participants to explore different forms of mark making and drawing. Participants will have the opportunity to develop their own drawings in response to their discoveries on the walk.

On The Move
The largest painting in the collection is on the move. The painting Albion by Albert Irvin is on its way to an exhibition at The Stanley & Audrey Burton Gallery at the University of Leeds. The painting will star in the exhibition The Expressive Mark, a celebration of the work of British artists in the second half of the 20th Century. The exhibition runs from the 17th November 2021 to the 2nd April 2022, for more information you can visit the gallery website. If you can't make it to the exhibition you will still be able to enjoy Albion when it returns to us at the end of the exhibition. It will be returned to it's usual home on the Westwood campus. You can read more about the painting Albion on its own dedicated webpage Albion by Albert Irvin.
