In its first 2 years, this critically acclaimed exhibition has drawn large and appreciative audiences, to enjoy superb art in the unique setting of the garden at Chatsworth. Beyond Limits is therefore an extraordinary opportunity for visitors of all ages to explore world class sculpture in a monumental open-air setting. Damien Hirst, Antony Gormley, Salvador Dali and Henry Moore are among the artists whose work, displayed in previous years, has made Beyond Limits an event not to be missed.
More than 20 works are on display, included in normal garden admission, making this one of the country's most eagerly awaited annual art shows. As a record of this exhibition, there will be a beautiful catalogue available for purchase in the Chatsworth shops.
The garden at Chatsworth is also home to a growing permanent collection of contemporary sculptures, including a new, site specific installation by Allen Jones, and a new work by David Nash, due for completion in September this year.
