The Contemporary British Painting collection was established by artists Robert Priseman and Simon Carter when they started to ask the question ‘Who today is painting in Britain? This new exhibition brings these important and innovative artists together for the very first time.

There is also a number of 20th century paintings from the Ipswich Borough Collection on show in the art school galleries. They have been chosen to show the range of painters in the Collection who have inspired, provoked discussion and continue to engage people today.
