Claire Twomey | Harley Gallery Exhibition


The Harley Gallery
24 March 2018 – 30 June 2018
Free Entry

As part of The Grand Tour Season Three, The Harley Gallery has collaborated with British artist Clare Twomey to explore life on the historic Welbeck estate through a series of lithophanes, shedding light on hidden worlds and forgotten processes.

Welbeck is a place of great beauty and history. ‘Half in Shadow: Half in Light’ reflects the life of the Welbeck estate now through a series of images within the lithophanes – these tell the stories of the contemporary life of the estate and those who live there. At the Welbeck estate there is a world that lives in the present and the future. This future is held in a glow of its past. This relationship is where the work ‘Half in Shadow: Half in Light’ has emanated from.


More about The Grand Tour Season Three

This season’s Grand Tour explores artistic process and industrial creation, yet each venue is unique, showing the diversity and cultural richness of the region. Inspired by the grand tours of the 18th century traveller, this modern-day interpretation offers a chance to see extraordinary art collections, great houses and romantic landscapes, fused with some of today’s most exciting contemporary artists. For more information, please click here.

Nottingham Contemporary is hosting a major retrospective of Linder, spanning four decades of her work, from photomontages to costumes. Her work is displayed alongside a constellation of influences, featuring more than 100 works by some 50 practitioners including artists, designers, architects, musicians and photographers.

Chatsworth House has welcomed Linder Sterling as artist-in-residence for the past six months, during which Linder has created a new image bank to provide a resource for future photomontages as a way of taking Chatsworth ‘out into the world’ in the exhibition Her Grace Land. 

Derby Museum and Art Gallery look back at the region’s industrial history through both historic artifacts and artistic interpretation.

This Grand Tour series builds on the second season in 2017 was a selected retrospective of Simon Starling, including a major painting by Joseph Wright of Derby.

The Grand Tour is a partnership of Nottingham Contemporary, Chatsworth, Derby Museum and Art Gallery and The Harley Gallery, together with Visit Nottinghamshire and Visit Peak District & Derbyshire.
