Deep Horizons is an exhibition that starts with the topic of excavation and presents sculpture, drawing, painting, installation, ceramics, photography and moving image from two very different collections of modern and contemporary art: the Middlesbrough Collection, cared for by MIMA, and the David and Indrė Roberts Collection, managed by The Roberts Institute of Art.


Artists’ work on show includes Bernd and Hilla Becher, Chiara Camoni, Ellen Gallagher, Theaster Gates, Emily Hesse, Lonnie Holley, Onya McCausland, Ana Mendieta, Paula Rego and John Stezaker.


For this exhibition MIMA and Roberts Institute of Art have worked with six curatorial collaborators from different fields of knowledge: broadcaster and actor Sir Tony Robinson, artists Liliane Lijn and Fiona Crisp, botanist Dr Greg Kenicer, Professor of Physics, Chamkaur Ghag, writer and academic Dr Julietta Singh and former Tees Bay Pilot Geoff Taylor.
