Beauty and Balance

Kettle’s Yard at the Fitzwilliam Museum

KYSee a slice of Kettle’s Yard’s unique collection of modern art, natural objects and furniture recreated in the Fitzwilliam Museum.

Kettle’s Yard house and gallery is currently closed for a major building project. In the first of two displays, key arrangements from Kettle’s Yard’s house will be re-created in the Glaisher Gallery at the Fitzwilliam Museum.

These groupings of art works and other objects reflect the founder of Kettle’s Yard, Jim Ede’s belief in the importance of creating balance in spaces to enhance the beauty of the works of art and objects that they contain.

Paintings and sculptures by Henri Gaudier-Brzeska, Ben Nicholson, Alfred Wallis, Joan Miró and Christopher Wood will be on display.

Watch out for special talks and events for all ages inspired by the display.

Beauty and Balance opens on Friday 14 August 2015 and runs until 30 April 2016.
