In Night in the Museum, artist Ryan Gander explores the act of viewing, through sculptures, paintings and prints from the Arts Council Collection. Pairing figurative sculptures with contemporary artworks, Gander sets up unlikely associations that provide an entirely fresh view of exhibition making.
This new volume features the work of over thirty artists including Angela Bulloch, Patrick Caulfield, Don Brown, Jacob Epstein, Liam Gillick, Roger Hiorns, David Hockney, Henry Moore, Ben Nicholson, Kerry Stewart, and Rebecca Warren, amongst others. Also presented for the first time is Gander’s new commission for the Arts Council Collection, As old as time itself, slept alone (2016), the latest in an ongoing series in which Gander re-imagines Edgar Degas’ famous work The Little Fourteen-Year-Old Dancer (1880–81) in different scenarios and stages in life, always paired with a blue cube.
