Gagosian takes Michael Craig-Martin to Chatsworth

Irish-born artist’s contemporary sculpture to be shown on the grounds of the historic home

Michael Craig-Martin

Gagosian gallery is planning an exhibition of works by Michael Craig-Martin at Chatsworth House, the ancestral home of the Cavendish family and now the seat of the Duke of Devonshire, in March 2014.

The idea for the display of the Irish-born artist’s sculptures on Chatsworth’s grounds came through William Burlington, the Duke’s son, who runs Lismore Castle Arts gallery in Ireland’s County Waterford (the castle is also owned by the Cavendish family). In 2010, Craig-Martin unveiled a digital portrait of Burlington’s wife, Laura, which now hangs in Chatsworth House.

A sculpture by Craig-Martin was recently on view at Hatfield House in Hertfordshire as part of “Here, there and somewhere in between”, an exhibition in collaboration with London’s Royal Academy, which closed last month. Chatsworth is currently hosting the eight edition of “Beyond Limits”, a selling exhibition through Sotheby’s of 20 sculptures (until 27 October).
