Collection: Create/Elevate

The third Harewood Biennial Create / Elevate celebrates the power of craft to surprise, inspire and bring people together to imagine new worlds. Presented within Harewood House and across its landscapes and gardens, it brings together the work of 16 British and international artists, designers and craft collectives including four major new commissions.

Showcasing a range of arts and crafts techniques, the exhibition shows how artists use craft for cross-generational knowledge sharing which is generous and the foundation of most things we know, use and value. It offers fresh perspectives on Harewood’s collections while exploring timely themes including local and global ecologies.

The contemporary exhibits provide new ways to engage with the centuries of craft artistry embedded within the interiors of Harewood House. Create/Elevate shows how artists and makers work collectively to affect societal change and promote social equity. Exhibits encourage fresh ways for audiences to engage the spaces and gardens of Harewood House, including actively, playfully and multi-sensorially.
