This Life is so Everday: The Home in British Art 1950–1980, an exhibition supported by a Paul Mellon Centre Curatorial Research Grant, is on view at Graves Gallery until 6 July 2019.

This Life is so Everyday reflects on social changes in British home lives between 1950 and 1980. It looks at how artists have used depictions of the domestic to signify our diverse experiences, question ideas of gender, class and sexuality, and represent some of the most intimate aspects of who we are.

See work by John Bratby, Patrick Caulfeld, Helen Chadwick, Richard Hamilton, David Hockney, Anne Redpath, Su Richardson and more.
