James Turrell »LightScape«
Houghton Hall, Norfolk
June 7 – October 24, 2015

From June 7th to October 24th this year, Houghton Hall, Norfolk, will host an ambitious and important exhibition of James Turrell’s light pieces, many collected by the Marquess of Cholmondeley, owner of Houghton, who has long been an admirer of his work.

The show is centred around works from the Houghton collection, which also includes projections, a »Tall Glass«, holograms and prints. The exhibition is complemented by further loans to help cover the broad spectrum of Turrell’s work; and a unique, site specific installation has been created especially for Houghton – »The Illumination« – lighting the whole west façade of the house to be viewed from dusk.
