Orleans House Gallery re-opening on May 18 with new exhibition ‘Remember the Future’

13 May 2021

Orleans House Gallery in Twickenham is set to re-open for the first time this year, on Tuesday 18 May, following its closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The popular riverside gallery re-opens with a new exhibition entitled ‘Remember the Future’ which explores how we can renew our relationship with nature.

The exhibition will see artists in residence setting up studios in the historic gallery on Richmond’s Riverside. The artists will present work that invites us to question established notions of our place as part of the natural world. This is the first exhibition in Orleans House Gallery’s new three-year project ‘Cultural Reforesting’

Alongside the exhibition, the galleries and grounds at Orleans House Gallery will become an ecocentric artistic research laboratory with the guest artists using their research to investigate the ways in which we can all explore and nurture the relationship we have with the natural world.

In accordance with government guidance, measures have been put in place to ensure visitors are able to enjoy visits to the gallery once again including a one-way system which will be in operation along with directional and social-distancing signs.

Orleans House Gallery is a free public art gallery in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames, managed by Richmond Council.

‘Remembering the Future’ will open on Tuesday 18 May and run until 14 November 2021.
