Leicester New Walk Gallery

Part of the Leicester Art Gallery's permanent collection is 'Picasso Ceramics: The Attenborough Collection' which displays selected items from the ceramic pieces created by Pablo Picasso donated to the gallery by film director and Leicester boy Richard Attenborough.
'Expressionist Spirit' is the Gallery's exceptional collection of paintings and prints by German Expressionist artists who sought to liberate powerful emotions which lay beneath the surface appearance of everyday life.
'Don't Look Back! I Told You So' is a temporary exhibition by Chien-Wei Chang, who is renowned for his striking re-interpretation of seemingly every day domestic objects such as ladles and bowls in materials such as silver, wood and bamboo that reflect his Chinese heritage.

In this exhibition, he has stepped away from his main practice of silver / metalsmithing to create a major new installation work combining hundreds of recycled glass bottles alongside exquisitely crafted handmade objects.
