Event Description

From March 2017 Compton Verney will stage The Clearing: a new, site-specific collaborative artwork by renowned British artists Alex Hartley and Tom James, which sets out to build a vision of the future in our grounds.

The project will create an evolving and exciting encampment, including a geodesic dome in the shadow of Compton Verney’s mansion house, where people can come together to learn how to live completely off-grid. Through a series of public workshops, and the opportunity to occupy the dome, The Clearing will become part school, part shelter and part future vision and will run throughout 2017.
