Albion Fields unveils inaugural exhibition with works by twenty-six international artists
5 July 2021
From 9 July 2021, Albion Barn in Oxfordshire unveils its inaugural Albion Fields exhibition in collaboration with Goodman, Marian Goodman, König and Lisson Gallery, presenting works by twenty-six major international artists including Ai Weiwei, Ryan Gander and Richard Long.
Albion Fields is a sculpture park set within 50 acres of Oxfordshire countryside, parts of which have been rewilded - restored to their natural, uncultivated state. The grounds provide unique installation sites for artworks, spanning from open vistas to secluded woodland areas and positions beside a natural lake.
Within the park are two works by Ai Weiwei: a large-scale 2013 sculpture from the Forever Bicycles series, and Sofa In Black (2011). Elsewhere are Richard Long's Ivory Granite Line (2016), and More really shiny things that don't mean anything (2012) by Ryan Gander, playing with the idea of monumental public sculpture in it's accumulation of a variety of random found metal objects.
This first installation of artworks at Albion Fields will be on view from 9 July – 25 September 2021.
