Your General Entry ticket includes entry to all exhibitions and the collection
Fresh from representing Scotland at the Venice Biennale, Alberta Whittle (b.1980) will present a suite of newly commissioned sculptures across the Holburne Museum’s site and grounds, as well as a series of new text-based works across Bath.
The exhibition, Whittle’s first in a public museum, will continue themes known in her practice including post-colonial healing, pleasure, and hospitality, each manifested through her prism of love, compassion, and kindness. Previous projects have looked to explore more recent historical events including the Windrush scandal, and the challenges faced by healthcare workers during the early days of the coronavirus pandemic. This, however, will be Whittle’s first commission to directly address 18th-century histories.
