The Grundy Art Gallery identified three core areas for future acquisitions: popular culture and commentary on the language of spectacle; works tracing the history of exhibitions at the Gallery or related to Blackpool; and a new strand of light-based artworks. The Grundy’s exhibition of Phillipson’s work in the summer of 2014 engaged with Blackpool’s local culture and landmarks, attracting some 7,000 people. The acquisition of Phillipson’s works ensures the enduring legacy of this popular exhibition, while meeting the Grundy’s core aspirations.
