Within a Realm of Distance art exhibition to open at Blenheim Palace

Date Posted: 24/07/2015

Within a Realm of Distance, a new exhibition by American artist Lawrence Weiner, will be open to visitors at Blenheim Palace from October.

From 10th October to 21st December, the exhibition will showcase several decades of Weiner’s work, alongside specific works created especially for the palace.

Weiner, recognised for his founding role in the Conceptual Art movement in the 1960s, will display artwork integrated throughout the ornately furnished palace rooms, as well as on the exterior of the 18th century building.

Blenheim Palace’s historic collections will be used as a support structure for his vision.

Within a Realm of Distance is the second exhibition to be curated by Blenheim Art Foundation. The first was by Chinese dissident artist Ai Weiwei, whose exhibition for the palace included heaps of conceptual crabs and strategically placed chandeliers.
