A new temporary artwork French Village has been installed in Pitzhanger’s front garden.

Julian Opie’s exhibition in the Gallery may have closed, but we can now reveal a new artwork by the leading contemporary artist outside in the gardens. A new version of Opie’s French Village is now on display on the hoardings of a development project to create a new volunteer and community space.

Find out more about our new volunteer and community space here.

In addition, our much-loved Curly hair, the LED monolith walking figure outside the Manor will remain until the end of the year, continuing to illuminate the forecourt throughout our winter season of events.

The centrepiece of Opie’s recent exhibition at Pitzhanger was an immersive, three-dimensional installation, based on a region of southwestern France. Other works in the Gallery explored 
similar views of the townscape through lightbox paintings and animation on LED screens. This new artwork provides an opportunity for visitors to explore the village’s empty streets in a completely different environment, outside in our picturesque gardens.
