Blenheim Art Foundation
Blenheim Art Foundation is a non-profit organisation that presents a programme of annual exhibitions by leading international contemporary artists at Blenheim Palace. The Foundation looks to challenge the conventional “white cube” presentation of contemporary art by integrating artworks directly into the Baroque interiors and surrounding grounds, creating dialogue between past and present, old and new, tradition and innovation.
With one large-scale solo exhibition each year, BAF introduces new audiences to the work of some of today’s finest living artists while also encouraging new demographics to engage with one of Britain’s most significant heritage sites. BAF has thus far hosted a consistent, multi-award winning programme of world-class international modern and contemporary art exhibitions, starting with Ai Weiwei in 2014, and followed by Lawrence Weiner in 2015, Michelangelo Pistoletto in 2016, Jenny Holzer in 2017, Yves Klein in 2018, Maurizio Cattelan in 2019, Cecily Brown in 2020 and Tino Sehgal in 2021.
