A group show offering the opportunity to explore contemporary figurative painting, including works by Hernan Bas, Kaye Donachie, Moyna Flannigan, Chantal Joffe, Bruno Pacheco, Gideon Rubin and Lynette Yiadom-Boakye.

How can a contemporary artist give a voice or fresh perspective to the established canon of figurative painting? Why do artists choose to give a voice to the characters they create? ‘To have a voice’ explores a variety of approaches.
