Following the success of the Re:New Wallace Collection exhibitions since 2018, R-Space will deliver the fourth in a series of collaborative cultural projects involving a Northern Irish artist/maker and the Wallace Collection in London, thus celebrating his historical/cultural connection with Co. Antrim and Lisburn in particular. Re:New Wallace #4 will link the Wallace Collection with the historical past of the Hertford family and their strong links with Lisburn where Sir Richard Wallace was the local MP, benefactor and land-owner.

Our selected artist this year is Matthew Wilson, who says: “I am delighted to have been selected by R-Space to produce work in response to its connection with The Wallace Collection, London and particularly the Rococo style which features heavily in the Collection’s interiors. Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 restrictions, I have been unable to travel to the Wallace Collection but feel confident that working alongside Anthea McWilliams of R-Space, the curators of The Wallace Collection and their excellent online resources will allow me to develop a series of works inspired by this fascinating collection and the Rococo period.
