This exhibition celebrates Coventry - the current UK City of Culture. Award-winning artist Maryam Wahid has worked with students from Barr’s Hill School in Coventry to explore identity and representation in relation to their own experiences. A series of collaborative portraits by Maryam are displayed alongside paintings and photographs from the National Portrait Gallery and the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum collections of people with connections to Coventry. The exhibition includes portraits of Ira Aldridge, Ellen Terry, Philip Larkin, Graham Sutherland, Mo Mowlam, The Specials, Billie Whitelaw, George Eliot and Guz Khan.
