Celebrating 300 Years of Thomas Chippendale
Nostell, Wakefield, 13 July — 28 October 2018
The Hepworth Wakefield, until 25 February 2019

To celebrate the 300th anniversary of the birth of Thomas Chippendale, the Hepworth Wakefield in West Yorkshire is working with one of the finest treasure houses in the North of England: Nostell, a National Trust house with over 100 pieces of Chippendale furniture. The role of artists in influencing interiors will be explored through key loans from both collections and special commissions by contemporary artists. Visitors will see modern and contemporary artworks in Nostell’s historic rooms and the most fashionable furniture of the 18th century within the 21st-century gallery spaces of The Hepworth Wakefield. Contemporary responses will be on display at Nostell until 28th October and at The Hepworth Wakefield until 25th February 2019.
