The exhibition I think we should see other people by artist Graham Hutchinson will run from 4 to 19 February and is curated by Rachel Kidd, a third year History of Art student.

Graham Hutchinson, a resident in Sheffield’s Bloc Studios, is inspired by the pre-1945 avant-garde movement.

He said: “I am a collector of images. My collection is formed from images I have found in many different places; cities I have lived in or visited, on the street, cafes and bars. Many of the source materials I use are aged and worn. They are then reconfigured or altered in an attempt to create new narratives, contexts and realities.”  

Mayssa Kachicho, Director of the Norman Rea Gallery, said: “Graham Hutton is interested in human behaviour, particularly the rituals and tensions that occur between men and women. This provides the inspiration for much of his work on show at York.”

The gallery hosts three exhibitions a term with lectures, seminars and events. 

The exhibition, I think we should see other people, is free and open to all. Following an opening event on Monday, 4 February from 7- 9pm, it will run until 19 February weekdays from 9am to 5pm.
