Portsmouth Revisited II

Until August 2021

Portsmouth revisited II: a history of Portsmouth in art from 1900 to the present day.

Since 1900, Portsmouth has survived two world wars, and has significantly evolved. Portsmouth revisited II aims to capture this sense of change, to celebrate a resounding spirit, diversity and resilience through the eyes of artists. It is the next chapter in the history of Portsmouth, a time fraught with war and hardship but also a time of renewal and the birth of a modern city.

This exhibition showcases key works from the city’s 20th century art collection and features new acquisitions and donations on display for the first time.

Featured artists include: Derek Boshier, Pete Codling, John Green, Alice Kettle, Edward King, Karl Rudziak and Jackie West.
