Representation and Reaction revisits the battlefield of contemporary art from the late 1950s into the 1970s. Back then the fight was between traditional landscape painting and a modernism rooted in abstraction. This show juxtaposes works from two art collections, the Kelliher and Fletcher Trusts; each aligned with a different side.
