Chris Ingram’s recent presentation at The Lightbox, Woking, on October 17th was an exciting and informative glance at what art enthusiasts can hope to expect from The Lightbox and the collection over the coming months.
He spoke about the collection’s new acquisitions which include the piece Soldier by Justar Misdemeanor (sic) from the Jerwood Drawing Prize. Justar Misdemeanor is the pseudonym of a young artist.
Followers of the collection will also be interested in the following new additions: Dame Elisabeth Frink’s Baboon, William Roberts’ The Party, Three in One by Allen Jones and two collages by Nigel Henderson, Childhood Visit to the Seaside and Lucky Thirteen.
Upcoming exhibitions to keep an eye out for include a show of Animals in the Ingram Collection, curated by The LBX Young Curators which is on from the 8th of January until the 16th of March.
From the 3rd of May to the 29th of June, The Lightbox will be welcoming an exhibition of Outsider Art entitled ‘Skylight’ working with the theme of ‘Sky’, as well as 36 workshops involving those with mental health issues, furthering Chris’ personal aim to get the community involved in art and the collection.
Towards the end of the year, and to coincide with the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War, we will draw upon the holdings within the Ingram Collection to host a Conflict themed exhibition, complementing the Horse at War show at The Lightbox.
