Tatton Park Biennial 2010: Framing Identity

8 May-26 September

Please note: The Biennial closed on 26 September 2010. More information about work in 2011 and the 2012 Biennial, 'Flights of Fancy'.

From May to September 2010, Tatton Park staged its second Biennial of contemporary art, a laboratory for creative experimentand exchange, with new works commissioned for the Mansion and Formal Gardens.

Twenty-one artists contributed to the life of the Biennial, with commissions considering ideas about what links people to place, notions of history and place-making and collective visions for the future.

Tatton Park is a listed site, owned by the National Trust and managed by Cheshire East Council. Framing Identity responded to the estate as a living and evolving subject rather than as an historical keepsake.
