Be amongst the first to see Anish Kapoor at Houghton Hall with an exclusive exhibition tour with curator Mario Codognato.
Anish Kapoor is one of the most influential sculptors working today, known for creating ambitious public sculptures, adventurous in both form and engineering across vastly different scales and materials.
The exhibition will feature some of Kapoor’s major works in mirror and stone, including Sky Mirror 2018 - a five metre diameter mirror of stainless steel that reflects and transforms the space around it, turning the world upside down - and a series of carved marble sculptures, created between 2001 and 2003, which will be displayed across the grounds. A number of works will also be shown inside the house, including a series of dramatic sandstone sculptures which will be presented in the gallery spaces.
“Anish Kapoor is a magician.” Lord Cholmondeley, Houghton Hall
