The Beacon Museum is delighted to present an exhibition of proposals for a new landmark artwork for Copeland. Commissioned as part of Deep Time: Commissions for the Lake District Coast, this exhibition showcases new designs, models and films, developed over the last two years in response to varied landscapes, and coastline of West Cumbria.
The exhibition includes proposals by artists following visits to West Cumbria over the last two years. Including Rachel Whiteread, Olafur Eliasson, Roger Hiorns with Tom Emerson (6A Architects), and Piet Oudolf with Nicolas Becker, Thomas Piper, Emanuele Coccia, AMI, and VPPR Architects
The Deep Time programme builds on and celebrates West Cumbria’s rich and varied terrain, bringing artists into a dialogue with its ecology, history, industry and rugged beauty. This dynamic landscape is where the Lake District National Park meets the Irish Sea and is constantly changing depending on the tide, light and weather.
The exhibition is accompanied by a series of talks and events featuring the project artists and project commissioners. Come along and share your thoughts on the proposals and find out more about the project and our plans.
The exhibition forms part of Deep Time: Commissions for the Lake District Coast, and is funded by Copeland Borough Council, HM Government’s Coastal Communities Fund, Sellafield Ltd’s Six Social Impact multiplied programme and Arts Council of England.
The exhibition will run from September 10 - October 9, 2022 at The Beacon Museum, Whitehaven, England.
