PROVIDENCE, RI.- The Museum of Art Rhode Island School of Design highlights its extraordinary collection of contemporary British art in a major exhibition this fall. Made in the UK: Contemporary Art from the Richard Brown Baker Collection richly captures Britain’s contemporary art scene as it emerged from World War II to become a prominent force on the world stage today. Made in the UK opened to the public on September 23. Made in the UK celebrates works by British artists from the 1950s through the present and includes such major figures as Tacita Dean, David Hockney, Howard Hodgkin, Anish Kapoor, Jim Lambie, Julian Opie, Bridget Riley, and Yinka Shonibare. Many of the artists in the exhibition are represented at the Tate and other important British collections, but are not seen in depth in American museums.
