At Shatwell – Private Views: The Collection and its Site

In 2018, to celebrate the opening of the exhibition Unconscious Landscape. Works from the Ursula Hauser Collection at Hauser & Wirth Somerset, Drawing Matter hosted a conversation between Lynne Cooke, senior curator of the National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC, and Tom Emerson and Stephanie Macdonald, founding directors of 6a architects, on how as curators and architects they can give meaning to a private collection. 

The conversation was followed by a ‘perambulatory lunch’ devised by Matchett & Page with chef Lucas Hollweg and Lucie Reader. The lunch comprised a number of courses spread between the different buildings and spaces of the farm, conceived to encourage the exploration of the site. A short film documenting the daily grind of Shatwell Farm by artist and carpenter Lucas Wilson was on show in the silo.
