About

Chatsworth has always been a centre for creativity, with successive generations of the Devonshire family commissioning art and design contemporary to their times.

‘Mirror Mirror: Reflections on Design at Chatsworth’ reflects on that history and introduces new works to the house and garden, continuing this legacy into the present day. 

Co-curated with writer, historian and curator, Glenn Adamson, the exhibition places contemporary works in direct relationship to the historic design at Chatsworth, creating unexpected connections with the house’s architecture, interiors, furniture, ceramics, as well as its essential materials of glass, stone, wood, and light.

The sixteen contemporary artists and designers featured in the exhibition are: Ini Archibong, Michael Anastassiades, Wendell Castle, Andile Dyalvane, Ndidi Ekubia, Najla El Zein, Formafantasma, Joris Laarman, Max Lamb, Fernando Laposse, Jay Sae Jung Oh, Samuel Ross, Chris Schanck, Ettore Sottsass, Faye Toogood, and Joseph Walsh.

The artworks are on display throughout the house at various points on the visitor route.

Three sculptures are on display in the garden and are accessible with all garden tickets for visits between 18 March - 1 October 2023.
