This event is postponed until further notice.
With Coventry designated as the UK City of Culture for 2021, and with many of its post-war architectural masterpieces under threat of redevelopment or destruction, printmaker Paul Catherall thought this was a timely chance to create a body of work that reflected on the unique beauty of his hometown.

Paul Catherall has become beloved for his linocuts of brutalist and modernist architecture that are both nostalgic and contemporary. Playing on the phrase ‘Sent to Coventry,’ this exhibition will showcase the underrated beauty of Paul’s home city and its iconic architecture that should be preserved, relating that aesthetic to views of London, where he lives now. So this show will include images both of Coventry and of London, and all resonate deeply with the artist. Some of the included London landmarks are Elephant & Castle, the Penguin Pool at London Zoo, and the Southbank.
