Houses, homes, huts and domestic themes have become ubiquitous in installation art over the last few decades. Gill Perry explores some of the mythical, metaphorical, aesthetic and social concerns that have inspired artists to engage with these everyday themes. She focuses on the work of three contemporary artists (Agnès Varda, Tracey Emin and Michael Landy) for whom (as she argues) ‘home’ is rich in contradictory, playful and nomadic meanings, evoking both local and transnational associations.

In the 1960s this late Pre-Raphaelite mural was painted over in white due to damp problems, the difficulties posed by restoration, and the fashion in church decoration at the time. A successful Heritage Lottery Fund bid by the Hoylandswaine Arts Group means that the original mural can now be restored. At the launch event for this project held on 29th October 2011 the art historian and writer Simon Poe gave an overview of the artist and the significance of this particular work. This event was followed by a study day. Please follow the link for details of the study day.
