With an initial launch date in March, the show was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic
Set to launch 12 July 2020 at the historic Houghton Hall in Norfolk, an exhibition will showcase works by celebrated British sculptor Anish Kapoor - known to be the largest exhibition of outdoor sculptures by the artist. The artist is famed for creating public sculptures which differ across scales and materials.
Curated by Mario Codognato, major works in mirror and stone such as Sky Mirror (2018) and a series of carved marble sculptures made between 2001 and 2003 will be on view outside. An array of works will also be showcased inside the house, such as a series of sandstone sculptures.
“Anish Kapoor is a magician," says Lord Cholmondeley, owner of Houghton. "His elegant reflective pieces throw back the world in mysterious ways. We are proud to have the opportunity to present an important group of Anish Kapoor’s work at Houghton and are delighted to be able to welcome visitors once again.”
Spanning 24 sculptures as well as a selection of drawings, the show will depict Kapoor's work created over the last four decades. The series of work serves to challenge the traditional architecture of the house, while respecting the beauty of Houghton’s past.
With an initial launch date in March, the exhibition was postponed due to COVID-19. All safety measures in line with government regulations will be set in place.
The Anish Kapoor exhibition will be on view from 12 July until 1 November 2020 at Houghton Hall
