“The splashes of bright rainbows which are still in windows around the country – some chalked upon pavements and walls – are testament to how much we need art to express ourselves, to signify meaning and to provide hope…

“If 2020 has taught us anything, it is that creativity provides joy, solace and fun in an increasingly fraught world,” says Jo Baring, Director of the Ingram Collection. She is also a selector for the ING Discerning Eye exhibition – an annual show dedicated to championing emerging artists. Baring is keen to emphasize the importance of imagination right now.

This message is at the heart of the 2020 ING Discerning Eye exhibition, which launches as museums and galleries close their doors once again. Crucially, the show is accessible from home – coming to our screens via a new virtual format. In an unprecedented year, the ING Discerning Eye exhibition offers a presentation like never before. Moving online means room for more artworks – culminating in an unmatched platform showcasing over 1,000 pieces by 600 creatives from all disciplines: photography, sculpture, drawing, painting, print and more. It will be live for six weeks; audiences can log on and be inspired by a wealth of talent right through until the New Year.
