The new MK Gallery's inaugural exhibition is The Lie of the Land, an ambitious show charting how British landscape was radically transformed by changes in free time and leisure activities since the aristocratic pursuits of hunting and shooting.
From the social, urban experiment of Milton Keynes to Capability Brown’s gardens at nearby Stowe, the exhibition teases out the aspirations that underpin our built environments. Featuring work by over 85 artists and designers including Canaletto, Jeremy Deller, Rose Finn-Kelcey, Elizabeth Frink, Thomas Gainsborough, Richard Hamilton, Emma Hart, Gertrude Jekyll, Laura Knight, Lawrence Lek, L.S. Lowry, Henry Moore, Eduardo Paolozzi, Bridget Riley, Yinka Shonibare MBE, Jo Spence, James Tissot, J.M.W. Turner and Rachel Whiteread.
