Unique exhibition puts digital “Zeitgeist” in the spotlight

A prize-winning painter is preparing to unveil a unique exhibition exploring people’s relationships with technology.

Warrington Museum & Art Gallery is proud to present its brand new exhibition Zeitgeist, by the extraordinary contemporary figurative painter Peter Davis.

This is a work that examines humanity and its relationship with technology through a unique collection of original paintings.

Each exquisite piece acts as a social documentary that probes beneath the surface of the digital age we live in, and looks at the status of a person within contemporary society.

Zeitgeist is the latest exhibition to form part of the extended Warrington Contemporary Arts Festival programme.

Thanks to support from Arts Council England, Culture Warrington – the charity that runs Warrington Contemporary Arts Festival, Warrington Museum & Art Gallery, and Pyramid & Parr Hall – is proud to present the year-round programme that enables them showcase raw talent.

By working with partners from across the North West, the charity plans to commission local, regional and national artists to connect with Warrington’s neighbourhoods throughout the year, culminating in Warrington Contemporary Arts Festival 2018.

Peter’s work will follow on from Echo and Worn; two hugely successful exhibitions by artists Holly Rowan Hesson and Ellen Sampson, which kick-started the year-long celebration of contemporary art.

An elected member of the Manchester Academy of Fine Arts (MAFA), Peter boasts a glittering reputation amongst his peers, and has also picked up a number of prestigious industry awards, including the Visitor’s Choice Prize at the Warrington Contemporary Open exhibition. In 2017, he was also shortlisted for Artist of the Year by Artists & Illustrators, the country’s leading art magazine.

So, for a chance to see this fascinating work first hand, why not turn off your tablet and put away your phone and head down to Warrington Museum & Art Gallery this spring?

Zeitgeist will be open to the public between Saturday 10 February and Saturday 28 April 2018.
