Visit our exhibitionsMore
Erwin Wurm: Trap of the Truth–This major exhibition is Erwin Wurm’s first museum show in the UK and presents sculpture, painting, photographs, video and drawings.
Jonathan Baldock: Touch Wood–Jonathan Baldock is a British artist who works across sculpture, installation and performance. His work is saturated with humour and wit, as well as an uncanny, macabre quality that channels his longstanding interest in myth and folklore.
Florian Gadsby: By My Hands–World-renowned ceramicist Florian Gadsby presents new works in this solo exhibition, By My Hands. Gadsby works from his studio in North London, where he uses iron-rich stoneware clay to produce his precision wheel-thrown tableware and one-off decorative sculptural vessels using traditional tools, techniques and processes.
Light Organ–This winter, visit the Chapel to experience Light Organ, a joyful and interactive artwork that brings sound to life in light and colour. Use microphones to activate the glowing pipes of the Light Organ, and see your sounds flow in a sculptural display of colourful light.
