The Miami-based Rubell Family Collection is known throughout the world as one of the leading private collections of contemporary art from the 1960s to the present day, while the Devonshire Collection is one of the great private collections amassed over 500 years and housed at Chatsworth House, England, and Lismore Castle, the Irish home of the Duke of Devonshire and his family.
Old and new, side by side - the unparalleled result of 500 and 42 years of collecting contemporary art, and one of the must sees of the Irish art calendar: darren almond, hernan bas, cecil beaton, carlo cignani, nathalie djurberg, dara friedman, thomas gainsborough, francis grant, hugh douglas hamilton, ezra johnson, peter lely, simon martin, henry turner munns, jacco olivier, joshua reynolds, anri sala, gregor schneider, teniers tapestry, anthony van dyck, jean baptiste vanloo, artur zmijewski.
This unusual collaborative exhibition brings together work from the Devonshire and Rubell Family Collections - pieces from the Devonshire Collection having been selected by the Rubell Family, while pieces from the Rubell Collection were selected by William and Laura Burlington. The complex relationships that exist between the collector, the artwork and the passage of time are explored, and the viewer may be prompted to question their own preconceptions of what is meant by the 'historical' and the 'contemporary'.
An exciting programme of panel discussions and artists' talks is being scheduled to run throughout this exhibition, as well as guided tours, workshops and events to engage and inspire young and old!
