Have your say

David Cholmondeley, 7th Marquess of Cholmondeley, and scion of Houghton Hall, said that although the art exhibition he has mounted may seem challenging to some he is convinced that everyone – including children – will take delight from the works in the Lightscape.

He said: Following the huge success of Turrell’s recent shows around the world, I am confident that our exhibition – the first of this scale in the UK for many years – will attract a wide and varied audience and that it will become one of the sensations of the arts calendar in 2015.”
