Kettle’s Yard

Cambridge

NOW CLOSED

Kettle’s Yard in Cambridge, which has been closed since 2015, has been subtly transformed by Jamie Fobert Architects. Carefully conceived to complement and enhance the qualities of the original House occupied by the creator of Kettle’s Yard, Jim Ede, the development includes major new exhibition galleries, education spaces, and new welcome areas. The opening exhibition, ‘Actions. The image of the world can be different’ will feature iconic works and new commissions by 38 international and British artists. Among these are John Akomfrah, Rana Begum, Naum Gabo, Henri Gaudier-Brzeska, Oscar Murillo, Ben Nicholson, Cornelia Parker and Caroline Walker. Kettle’s Yard’s programmes for young people will also be expanded, benefitting from the new learning spaces at the heart of the development. Find out more about the reopening of Kettle’s Yard from their website.
