The Roots

that Clutch

The Roots that Clutch explores the role of the artist as (hi)story-teller.

Featuring photography and video work by Lara Chamas, Caroline Garcia, Jess Miley, James Tylor, and Derek Sargent, the exhibition highlights how our values, beliefs, and sense of identity are shaped by the stories we tell. In this exhibition, the artists explore personal histories and challenge grand narratives.

The Roots that Clutch will be opened by Penny Grist, Curator Exhibitions at the NPG, at 6pm on Thursday the 12th of November.
