BSL Tour of Ingrid Pollard: Carbon Slowly Turning


Saturday 13 August, 11am – 12pm

Saturday 17 September, 11am – 12pm

The Exhibition 

Guyanese-born British artist and photographer Ingrid Pollard’s Turner Prize-nominated exhibition Carbon Slowly Turning will be presented at the gallery this summer (9 July – 25 September 2022).

The exhibition, which spans Turner Contemporary’s first-floor galleries, is Pollard’s first major survey and examines her substantial contribution to British art. Her work explores how images and identity are constructed, especially in representations of history and the landscape, working with film, photography, installation and sound. Neither a retrospective nor a chronological display, this exhibition interrogates Britishness, race and sexuality.
