Ken Kiff: The Sequence, The Sainsbury Centre, Norwich, now until Sun 21st April
The Sainsbury Centre is always a great way to spend a few hours and this colourful exhibition might even grab the kids’ interest. Widely considered to be one of the most important artists of his generation, Kiff spent his career exploring issues that fused the complexity of the individual psyche with everyday life. This major exhibition is the first showing of his work in a public gallery for over 25 years.
Plus – explore the brilliant works in the Sculpture Park – Lynn Chadwick’s Steel Beasts are still in situ.
