Trustees landscapes, rich in cultural, historical and natural context, provide platforms for inspiration and meaning. Art & the Landscape is a multi-year initiative to share compelling contemporary art in the context of a public landscape with Trustees members and visitors.
With the help of independent curator Pedro Alonzo, we aim to surprise, delight, and intrigue visitors with unique new works at some of our most iconic properties. In July 2019, Trustees presents our fourth Art & the Landscape installation, by internationally renowned contemporary artist Doug Aitken. The most ambitious project yet for the series, Aitken’s work will be a multi-site experience, complemented by music, conversation, and food, inspiring visitors to experience the convergence of art and landscape. Currently on view at Castle Hill on the Crane Estate is the third installation in the Art & the Landscape series, Alicja Kwade’s TunnelTeller. Previously, we featured commissioned works designed for The Old Manse in Concord and World’s End in Hingham, by renowned artists Sam Durant and Jeppe Hein, respectively. Each creation in the Art & the Landscape series is site-specific, designed to help tell the story of these treasured places.
