Found Cities, Lost Objects: Women in the City, is a national touring exhibition curated for the Arts Council Collection by Turner Prize-winning artist and cultural activist Lubaina Himid CBE.

This exhibition of over 60 works, including some by Bristol-based artists, presents a wide array of modern and contemporary art, including painting, sculpture, photography and film from both the Arts Council Collection and artists’ studios.

The work in this exhibition can sometimes appear challenging but it encourages visitors to view the city through a woman’s eyes, and questions our understanding of the urban city. Found Cities, Lost Objects addresses themes ranging from safety and navigation to concepts of belonging and power and fun, freedom and discovery.

Included in the exhibition are works from the Arts Council Collection by Found Cities, Lost Objects features works by Sophie CalleHelen CammockMilena DragicevicAnthea HamiltonYoung In HongMarkéta LuskačováMargaret MurrayCornelia Parkersusan pui san lokHannah Starkey and Magda Stawarska-Beavan, among others
