Baby boomers, millennials, first and second generation immigrants: we are obsessed with what makes one group different from the last. But the connections we make with other generations are often just as important as those we make with our own.

GENERATIONS: Connecting Across Time and Place brings together twelve British and UK-based artists, working across a dynamic range of media from installation to photography, sculpture to video. The exhibition explores both cherished memories and difficult histories. Some artists look to the stories, memories and genes we inherit from our families. Others interrogate the contemporary legacies of historical figures and events.

GENERATIONS questions how personal and political pasts can bring us together – or pull us apart. This exhibition is curated by the students on the MA Curating the Art Museum programme at The Courtauld Institute of Art. It is part of the Somerset House summer programme, which celebrates the rich contribution of different cultures to Britain, and invites visitors to explore issues of identity, representation and perception in our society.

The exhibition was made possible by the generous support of Christian Levett, founder of the Musée d’Art Classique de Mougins and Minerva Magazine, and by the Arts Council Collection and LUX.
