Aspire – exhibition
The Commandery, Worcester
From Saturday 1st April ‘23
Artist Wayne Warren takes over The Commandery with contemporary art interventions in the exhibition Aspire opening Saturday 1st April until Sunday 3rd September.
The focal point of the exhibition centres on the themes of aspiration, dreams, and ambition, offering a contemporary take on the historical significance of the site. The location, which has functioned as a medieval monastic hospital, Tudor residence, and 1950s print works, is best known as the headquarters for the Royalist army during the Battle of Worcester in 1651.
Among the collection of artworks featured in the exhibit, visitors can explore the striking Golden Wings display in the grand Great Hall, a lenticular photograph titled The Fall, and the newly commissioned Growth artwork. Growth features gold leaf embellished oak leaves and acorns, thoughtfully positioned atop a wooden stool hewn from the Boscobel Oak.
The Commandery is open Tuesday – Saturday 10am – 5pm, Sunday 11am – 3pm. Normal admission applies. For more information, please visit Aspire – exhibition – Museums Worcestershire
