In 2017 we celebrate our 40th birthday with major indoor and open-air exhibitions, ambitious interventions in the landscape and an exciting series of special events.

Highlights include the largest UK exhibition to date by leading British artist Sir Tony Cragg, a homecoming for the Turner Prize-winning artist who has lived and worked in Wuppertal, Germany for 40 years, and a rare opportunity to experience significant recent work by the eminent Chilean artist, architect and filmmaker Alfredo Jaar.

More Information

As part of the National Partners Programme we continue to curate exhibitions from the Arts Council Collection and in 2017 will work with Bangladeshi-born, London-based artist Rana Begum who is guest curator for a new show at Longside Gallery.

Poet, playwright and novelist Simon Armitage will take up a 12-month residency, visiting throughout the seasons to write new work in response to the Park, curating a series of readings and events as well as launching a new publication in the autumn. And pioneering new media artist Haroon Mirza will create an intervention in the James Turrell Deer Shelter Skyspace over the summer solstice.
