The Grand Tour: Season Three


The Grand Tour Season Three
Nottingham Contemporary | Chatsworth | The Harley Gallery | Derby Museums
Saturday 24th March - Sunday 17th June 2018

Take a journey across Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire experiencing the treasures of its museums and galleries.

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.

This season of the Grand Tour features British contemporary artist Linder, known for her photomontages. Following an artist-residency, Linder will exhibit new works inspired by the collection at Chatsworth. Linder has taken inspiration from her unique surroundings – from the aromatic plants on the estate, oral histories, and the sounds of the house.

Nottingham Contemporary will host 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.

The Harley Gallery, in collaboration with the British artist Clare Twomey, explore life on the historic Welbeck estate through a series of lithopanes, shedding light on hidden worlds and forgotten processes.

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.
