This summer, the Ashmolean launches a new exhibition series of contemporary art: Ashmolean NOW.
Contemporary artists are invited to create new work inspired by the Ashmolean’s historical collections.
The first exhibition is dedicated to contemporary painting. It juxtaposes the work of two London-based painters, Flora Yukhnovich and Daniel Crews-Chubb.
Despite stylistic differences, the work of both artists links art historical inspirations with a dynamic and contemporary painterly language. The paintings displayed, all made specifically for this exhibition, convey a timeless passion for the medium of painting, its materials and processes.
