As Chatsworth celebrates the completion of its biggest restoration and conservation project in 200 years, architecture and design feature in many of this year’s talks.
Art Out Loud at Chatsworth is excited to present Lubaina Himid, who made history in 2017 as the first black woman – and the oldest artist – to win the Turner Prize. Her multidisciplinary practice exposes the politics of race and gender through wide-ranging visual mediums using found ceramics, painting and large-scale cutouts. At the festival, she will be in conversation with Dr Zoe Whitley, curator of International Art at the Tate Modern, exploring art as activism, political acts of curating and the sheer joy of art making.
Chatsworth’s first ever artist-in-residence, Linder Sterling will be joined by Lord Burlington to discuss her Chatsworth exhibition, Her Grace Land, and its unparalleled poly-sensory approach to the past, present and future.
Leading British artist Idris Khan will speak about the minimal, yet emotionally charged photographs, videos and sculptures that make up his practice, exploring the influences and creative process behind his work.
Headline speakers will be joined by art historian Dan Cruickshank and architect John Pawson, amongst others.
