Each year Chatsworth plays host to an exhibition of monumental proportions. Beyond Limits. Sculptures and artworks pop up around the house’s 105 acre garden. It’s an event that’s now firmly imprinted on the art world’s map, as well as a firm favourite with visitors to Chatsworth.
We entice and cajole the media to join us at our annual press call. And like the art world, it’s an event that the press look forward to and attend in their droves. BBC, ITV, national media, photo journalists, bloggers and local press all vie for the most exciting images and content to grab the public’s attention. The result is the continued growth and success of this fantastic spectacle.
This year it’s the searing, abstract vision of the New World featuring a one-off display of works from the foremost artists of post-war America. It’s the first prominent open-air exhibition of post-war American sculpture in the UK and features twenty two sculptures.
Highlights include works by Robert Indiana, Julian Schnabel and Louise Nevelson. Other artists on display are David Smith; Wendell Castle; Isamu Noguchi; Richard Serra; Sol LeWitt; Mark di Suvero; George Rickey; Claes Oldenburg & Coosje van Bruggen; Tony Smith; Robert Morris; Beverly Pepper; Joel Shapiro; and Sam Francis.
