WORLD-RENOWNED ARTIST SEAN SCULLY STAGES MAJOR EXHIBITION OF OUTDOOR SCULPTURE IN NORFOLK
This spring one of the world’s most celebrated artists Sean Scully takes over the grounds and historic interiors of Houghton Hall for an exhibition that will showcase the full range of the artist’s sculpture. In the Hall and Contemporary Gallery, the artist will also show a significant group of paintings and works on paper.
Designed by prominent Georgian architects Colen Campbell and James Gibbs, Houghton Hall is one of the UK’s finest examples of Palladian architecture. Houghton Hall and its estate passed to the Cholmondeley family at the end of the 18th Century and remains a family home. The house and award-winning gardens are open to the public from spring until autumn, along with the Soldier Museum, which houses the world’s largest private collection of model soldiers, the superbly constructed 18th Century stables and an expansive deer park.
The exhibition is organised by the Houghton Arts Foundation with the support of Lisson Gallery and Thaddaeus Ropac gallery and key assistance from the artist and his studio. A fully illustrated catalogue will include a text by Sean Rainbird.
