Mixing it up

Dudmaston is working with contemporary artist Faye Claridge to present Shaken and Stirred, a new project that aims to uncover stories from the estate’s 875-year history.
Throughout the year, visitors will be able to see a changing mix of stories and objects which illustrate the scale and legacy of the estate. Visitors, volunteers and staff will have the opportunity to express which theme feels most relevant and important to them. Faye explains, “Normally, the property team plan when and how to redisplay a gallery. This time, we’re shaking things up by asking you to shape the space.”
“As an artist it feels exciting, if not a little scary, to say we don’t actually know how the gallery will look in a month’s time, never mind next year. The whole project is totally reliant on everyone’s thoughts, suggestions and responses.”
The most popular theme or story to come from the project will shape a new exhibition in 2019.
