Peter Blake Participating in The Arts Council’s Grand Tour of the East Midlands
Four organisations in Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire have created a modern-day Grand Tour of the East Midlands which aims to showcase the regions’ art collections, architecture and landscapes to new local, national and international audiences. Nottingham Contemporary, Chatsworth House, Derby Museums and Harley Gallery will display Baroque and Enlightenment objects from their collections alongside work from contemporary artists such as Pablo Bronstein, Rem Koolhaas and Rose English. At the Harley Gallery, Peter Blake will be curating a display of Portland Collection miniatures. This will be accompanied by an exhibition of his collages from his World Tour series.
The programme of exhibitions, sponsored by The Arts Council of England, will take place from July to September next year and March to June in 2016.
