'Dialogue' was a group exhibition that included Chorlton's double-sided diptychs 'Quinconces' and 'Across the River', four large paintings on paper suspended from the roof, and the 'Bordeaux Sequence', a series of small paintings. All were developed from images of Bordeaux. Derived from old and new photographs, they create a “filmic” walk around the city, to filter the tourist gaze through individual experience and the act of making. The invited exhibition built on previous exchanges between artists in Birmingham and Bordeaux. The participating artists, the Dialogue group (Graham Chorlton, Myfanwy Johns, Peter Grego, Joss Burke and Tom Ranahan), were asked to create new work as a response to Bordeaux for the 2010 Art Chartrons Festival. They were given the Halle de Chartrons, a 19th century market hall, to create the keynote exhibition for the festival.
