Explore sixteen contemporary global designers who are coming together this year to reveal over 500 years of design history at Chatsworth, bringing new perspectives to the estate that has a long tradition of being a gathering place for new ideas.
Chatsworth has always been a centre for creativity, with successive generations of the Devonshire family commissioning art and design contemporary to their times. ‘Mirror Mirror: Reflections on Design at Chatsworth’, which will be on display in the house and garden from 18 March to 1 October 2023, reflects on that history and introduces new works to the house and garden, continuing this legacy into the present day.
Co-curated with writer, historian and curator, Glenn Adamson, the exhibition places contemporary works in direct relationship to the historic design at Chatsworth, creating unexpected connections with the house’s architecture, interiors, furniture, ceramics, as well its essential materials of glass, stone, wood, and light.
The sixteen contemporary artists and designers featured in the exhibition are: Ini Archibong, Michael Anastassiades, Wendell Castle, Andile Dyalvane, Ndidi Ekubia, Najla El Zein, Formafantasma, Joris Laarman, Max Lamb, Fernando Laposse, Jay Sae Jung Oh, Samuel Ross, Chris Schanck, Ettore Sottsass, Faye Toogood, and Joseph Walsh.
