House of Beasts
Contemporary Art Exhibition
House of Beasts takes place in the stables, mansion and parkland of Attingham Park (National Trust), Shrewsbury, Shropshire until 15 July 2012. The group exhibition includes new commissions and existing work directly inspired by Attingham's history and responding to its rich collections. The works investigate our relationship with those animals who live in close proximity to us or share our living space, whether domestic, wild or managed.
The contemporary art works offer an opportunity to revisit the diversity and wealth of Attingham’s collections as well as the significance of its landscape.
