Showcasing work from last year’s Venice Biennale, Diaspora Pavillion features work from 19 entrants, exploring the reality that the diaspora holds today. By combining the Biennale’s theme of ‘the national pavilion’ with that of the diaspora, Diaspora Pavilion hopes to expose the feelings of displacement and migration within a patriotic space, whilst also creating a new narrative through its location. With each artist chosen as a representative of their country, the pieces on display are exceptional and a real coup for Wolverhampton. The theme also makes way for a monumental set of art and installation, allowing for a truly exquisite and immersive experience.
Sat 10 Feb – Sun 29 Apr. Wolverhampton Art Gallery, Lichfield St, Wolverhampton, WV1 1DU. Open every day 10.30am-4.30pm except Sun 11am-4pm. Free. www.wolverhamptonart.org.uk
