This exhibition has now closed, find out what else is going on at Sunderland Museum & Winter Gardens

An Arts Council Collection National Partner Exhibition

Challenging the notion that creative radicalism is the preserve of youth, Received Wisdom brings together a body of work created by older artists. Dynamic, innovative, and wide-ranging, the exhibition challenges our assumptions about ageing and about what is expected of us at different stages of our lives.

For more information about the exhibition and the full programme of related events, visit the Sunderland Museum website.

Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England and the National Lottery Heritage Fund, with additional support from The Arts Society.
