The British Art Network's UnCanon

  • 7 February 2022

The British Art Network (BAN) has recently launched its new UnCanon – a 'virtual collection' which brings together images from across the history of British art selected by BAN Members.

Each image is accompanied by a short commentary produced by the Member and exploring a theme or question of their choosing. Freed from the practical limitations of physical exhibition and untrammelled by the linear narratives of British art history, the UnCanon offers a collectively curated overview of ‘British art’ as a rich, varied and sometimes compromised or contradictory category. The content and character of the UnCanon will continue to change as more images are added.
