Look forward to a summer of contemporary art at National Trust places

National Trust Press Office

This summer, visitors to the National Trust will be able to explore and celebrate the places in its care through a series of creative programming, exhibitions, visual arts, crafts and architecture as part of its Trust New Art programme.

Trust New Art is a programme of contemporary arts run by the National Trust in partnership with Arts Council England since 2009.

Many Trust houses and gardens were built with art at their hearts, and Trust New Art continues this creative legacy, introducing new audiences to well-known and up-and-coming artists.

Exploring the often complex themes and collections of National Trust properties, Trust New Art offers a different way to approach the stories that have shaped some of the country’s best known houses, gardens and landscapes.

Visitors will be able to see a variety of new art, including large installations, film and theatrical performances, carving and sculpture.
