Free tickets for a new exhibition in Westminster Hall of artworks by Cornelia Parker OBE RA, created in response to the 2017 General Election, are now available to book.
The UK’s first ever female Election Artist has produced a collection of artworks for the Parliamentary Art Collection which are intended to reflect the tone and mood of this unique snap election.
The artworks consist of two films, entitled ‘Left Right & Centre’ and ‘Election Abstract’ and a series of 14 photographic prints selected from her Instagram feed and taken while she was following the campaign trail.
In addition to viewing the exhibition, visitors are welcome to watch debates from the public galleries when the Houses are sitting, or take one of the audio or guided tours which run every Saturday and on most weekdays during the February and Easter recesses.
