How were the works selected?

The exhibition works on many levels. Firstly, curatorial decisions were taken in selecting to ensure a cohesive body of work. The selected works all make reference to classical or art historical sources in either the method of depiction or their subject matter. While each of the partners has a very different collection in terms of capacity and the period of time they have been collecting, it was agreed at the outset that each would be represented equally. The exhibition also includes new work by Daphne Wright and Amanda Coogan that were commissioned specifically for the project.
