British artist Anish Kapoor brings 24 sculptures to the lush grounds and classic interiors of Houghton Hall, an imposing mansion built in England in the 1720s, for a solo exhibition that will run through Nov 1. 

The exhibition, supported by Lisson Gallery, creates a dialogue between the past and the present, as Kapoor's dramatic works engage with Houghton Hall's historical atmosphere. Also on show are drawings and smaller works that provide visitors a glimpse of the artist's career that spans more than four decades.

Kapoor, who was born in Mumbai and lives in London, is known for creating large, engaging public sculptures that evoke reflections on history and a dialogue between East and West.
