Not just a pile of old stones: Contemporary Art and the English stately home Anna Moszynska Wednesday 12 June 2019

The talk focuses on the recent proliferation of contemporary art on display in Britain’s stately homes and parklands such as Blenheim Palace, Chatsworth House and Houghton Hall. It explores the fascinating dialogue between landscape, architecture and the vibrant art of today. Among the major international artists will be Ai Weiwei, Barbara Kruger, James Turrell as well as Turner Prize winners, Antony Gormley, Damien Hirst and Richard Long.

Anna Moszynska is a lecturer and writer, specialising in contemporary art. She developed the first British Master’s Degree in the subject at Sotheby’s Institute. Anna currently teaches at academic institutions in London and Paris and runs her own art courses. Her books include ‘Abstract Art’ (1990) and ‘Sculpture Now’ (2013).
