David Hepher featured in The World We Live In: Art and the Urban Environment

Arts Council Collection Touring Exhibition
18 September 2022 - 1 January 2023

Tour Dates and Venues

David Hepher's Arrangement in Turquoise and Cream (1979) is included in this touring exhibition of painting, sculpture, photography, and film that explores themes from urban development to migration and the relationship between inner cities and suburbia.

The many facets of urban life – architecture, migration, commuting, crowds, noise, lights – have been a rich source of inspiration to artists throughout history. Following events of the last couple of years, there has been much emphasis and reflection around the concept of ‘city’, its purpose, and its future in the context of urban communities.

The World We Live In brings together modern and contemporary works which explore many of these issues and considers how city dwellers engage with their built-up surroundings.

The exhibition also presents some of the Arts Council Collection’s outstanding collection of documentary photographs from the 1960s and 1970s which present an unparalleled view of inner city life across the UK.

Other exhibiting artists include Michael AndrewsDavid AustenRut Blees LuxemburgEduardo PaolozziSuzanne Treister and Rachel Whiteread.
