11 Major Art Exhibitions Not to Miss This Spring in the U.K., From David Hockney in London to Tony Cragg in Norfolk
Museums are finally back after a long period of closure.
Well folks, it’s finally happened: the U.K. government has given museums the green light to reopen to the public, and the culture-starved among us have engaged in a battle royale to secure tickets to see the best of what the country’s institutions have to offer.
From the main contenders (Heather Phillipson at Tate Britain and David Hockney at the Royal Academy) to the lesser-known gems (Shara Hughes at the Garden Museum), here are 11 exhibitions not to miss in the U.K. this spring.
Houghton Hall, Norfolk
May 19–September 26
The British sculptor and Turner Prize-winning artist Tony Cragg has taken over the grounds and interiors of Houghton Hall in Norfolk with a series of spectacular sculptures. Cragg has curated the selection himself, from monumental bronze and steel sculptures in the gardens, to smaller pieces inside the grand house’s state rooms and galleries.
