16th March - 21st April, 2019

Mount Stuart Trust is delighted to announce a solo exhibition by Whitney McVeigh this spring as part of its expanded Contemporary Visual Arts Programme featuring new work.

Whitney McVeigh reaches into the Bute Archive, traditionally the realm of a patriarchal narrative, and focuses on intimate traces of the history of women in the house.

In this show she presents curated assemblages of archive material and objects, and (following on from her recent work Divine Rules at the Getty Villa CA) a selection of books from the Mount Stuart library, together with her own open letter and texts addressed to the public reader and inscribed on brass plaques placed throughout the house.

Join Mount Stuart and Whitney McVeigh in conversation with Charlotte Rostek, Head of Collections, and Susanne Calice, Psychoanalyst and Member of the British Psychoanalytical Society, about the archive and exhibition at Mount Stuart on Saturday 16 march at 3.30pm.
