TESSA TRAEGER: 'THE CALLIGRAPHY OF DANCE' FEATURED IN WALLPAPER* OCTOBER 2014

"Faced with the task of investigating the collection, Richard Scott [10th Duke of Beccleuch] appointed Paul Boucher as its curator and research director, and together they came up with the idea of appointing an unofficial artist in residence who could express the music collection in visual terms. Which is where Traeger comes in."

The Calligraphy of Dance, a new exhibition of photographs by Tessa Traeger, inspired by the Montagu Music Collection at Boughton House, will be shown in a one day exhibition at Boughton House on 27th September, followed by an exhibition at Purdy Hicks Gallery in early 2015.
