While the term ‘significant other’ has come into everyday use to refer to someone’s intimate partner, it has its origins in psychology, referring to people who have a major influence on one’s quality of life – a parent, mentor or other figure who has shaped a person’s development.
This exhibition celebrates connections between artists and their works in the Gallery’s outstanding Collection, exploring a range of different relationships between pairs of artists – as partners, family members, teachers, mentors or friends.
