This exhibition took place from 9 March - 12 May 2013 in the Art Gallery.

The New Arts Council Collection touring exhibitions Transmitter/Receiver traces some of the uses of the collage in British art from the first influences of the Parisian avant-garde, in the early work of Ben Nicholson and British Surrealists Eileen Agar and Ronald Penrose, through to present day practitioners such as Steve Claydon, DavidNunoon, Idris Khan and Grayson Perry.  Bringing together over 50 works, it includes traditional collage on paper, projections, all drawn from Arts Council Collection.
