The artist Kurt Schwitters was once described by the writer and curator John Elderfield as ‘curious for being so self-effacing and so supremely self-confident at one and the same time’.  Humble As Hell brings together ten contemporary artists whose works address this same paradox in a number of different ways. The exhibition takes place at the site of Schwitters’ final creative project, in the English Lake District.
