The Bowes Museum showcases Regeneration exhibition by Martin Kinnear about the year the world ground to a halt.

21 November 2020 - 28 February 2021

The Bowes Museum showcases Regeneration exhibition by Martin Kinnear about the year the world ground to a halt.

The International award-winning Northern artist Martin Kinnear has produced Regeneration in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

It’s a powerful and moving take on the year the World came to a halt, about what happens when plans are cancelled, futures are placed in doubt and the life-affirming power of change. It’s about beauty and hope and the restorative power of contemplation and features a 16-foot high animation at its centre, inspired by High Force waterfall in Teesdale. 

It’s a humane and thoughtful artistic critique by the Wensley-based artist, who is nicknamed ‘Lefty’ after a stroke 15 years ago at the age of 35, which left him paralysed down his left side. He took Paris by storm in 2018, scooping the prestigious Medaille d’Argent at the Salon Des Beaux Art.

Visitors to The Bowes Museum now have until 8 November to enjoy the Pre-Raphaelite Knights: Reinventing the Medieval World exhibition.
