Face2Face

8 July 2017 - 3 September 2017

A select exhibition curated from the Arts Council Collection.

Step inside Torre Abbey this summer and be surrounded by renowned artists and radical works depicting alter egos, rebellion, gender, feminism, death and legend.

This is not your typical day out in South Devon.

The Face2Face exhibition will for the first time bring together and quite literally ‘face off’ 33 works from 20 award winning, contemporary British artists in the Arts Council Collection and rare, visionary works from Pre-Raphaelite artists in the Torre Abbey Collection.

Journey through 300 years of portraiture from pencil to paintings, and photography to film; as you follow the art through the historic corridors and intricate spaces of this mesmerizing museum and Ancient Scheduled Monument.

THE YOUNG BRITISH ARTISTS

Mark Wallinger, Sarah Lucas, Jake and Dinos Chapman, Gillian Wearing, OBE

THE ORIGINAL MASTERS

William Blake, Sir Edward Coley Burne-Jones, William Holman Hunt 

BEYOND THE EXHIBITION 
Other highlights of a visit include a programme of Face2Face workshops with the Digital Design Agency (a Play Torbay initiative) and drop-in selfie sessions. The summer season at Torre Abbey will also offer open-air cinema, live performances, theatre and the newly launched Family Sundays. Reasons aplenty to plan a visit.

FREE ENTRY FOR KIDS & TEENS 
Torre Abbey is a great family day out and inspires creative and curious minds with dressing up, interactive displays, garden trails and other great activities. The museum is one of only a handful of South Devon attractions to offer free entry throughout the year for kids and teens (under 18 years).
