Dion Kitson: Rue Britannia
May 13, 2024
'Dion Kitson: Rue Britannia' opens today at the Ikon Gallery, Birmingham. In partnership with English Heritage, Ikon Gallery is showcasing the first major solo exhibition and off-site commission, 'Silver Lining', of this ACS member.

The show’s visual environment draws inspiration from Kitson’s personal experiences growing up in Dudley, a market town in the heart of the Black Country. Spanning across sculpture, found objects, installation and film, Kitson’s work is original, witty and thought-provoking.


Kitson’s off-site commission, Silver Lining, at J.W. EVANS Silvers Factory pays tribute to Britain’s lost industrial past and provokes a dialogue between the heritage of the historic factory and Ikon, a contemporary art gallery.


Until 8 Sep
