Ikon Gallery, 1 Oozells Sq, Brindleyplace, Birmingham B1 2HS

This exhibition, part of our nationwide programme celebrating the centenary of Nolan’s birth, brings to light a selection of extraordinary spray painted portraits dating from the 1980s. It includes a series made in 1982 for an exhibition at the Nolan Gallery at Lanyon just outside Canberra, depicting individuals that had strong personal significance for Nolan, including his brother (tragically killed in the Second World War), close friend Benjamin Britten, Francis Bacon and fellow Australian artist Brett Whiteley.  The exhibition at Ikon is accompanied by a publication with texts by Jane Clark and Ian Henderson, available from Ikon Shop for a discounted price for the duration of the exhibition.  Click here to visit the Ikon website
