Going Deep

‘Deep Horizons’ at Mima starts with the topic of excavation and presents sculpture, drawing, painting, installation, ceramics, photography and moving image from the last 50 years.

‘Deep Horizons’ is a wide-ranging group show that has pulled out all sorts of stops. Developed through a series of conversations, the exhibition explores layers of themes, including history and time, geology and land, memory and dreams, and the politics of how we record and understand the past. Among the artists who have work at the show are Paulo Rego (that’s her ‘Scarecrow and the Pig’ – pictured), Bernd and Hilla Becher, Chiara Camoni, Ellen Gallagher, Theaster Gates, Emily Hesse, Lonnie Holley, Onya McCausland, Ana Mendieta and John Stezaker. The exhibition presents two very different collections of modern and contemporary art: the Middlesbrough Collection, and the David and Indré Robert Collection.
