Upcoming exhibition – Harland Miller: York, So Good They Named It Once

York Art Gallery presents Miller’s largest solo exhibition to date

14 Feb – 31 May 2020

York Art Gallery presents Harland Miller’s (b. York, 1964) largest solo exhibition to date. Featuring both new and existing works, the show includes perhaps Miller’s best-known series; the ‘Penguin Book Covers’ and the ‘Pelican Bad Weather Paintings’. These works directly refer to the artist’s relationship to York, the city in which he grew up, as well as making wider references to the culture and geography of Yorkshire as a whole. In addition to these dust jacket paintings, the artist shows works from his recent ‘Letter Painting’ series; canvases made up of overlaid letters to form short words or acronyms in a format inspired by the illuminated letters of medieval manuscripts.
