The Middle: Tom Ellis at the Wallace Collection

15 September – 27 November 2016


This September the Wallace Collection presents a new, contemporary exhibition of the work of Tom Ellis. Through a specially commissioned series of paintings and self-made furniture, Tom Ellis: The Middle will redefine the notion of public and private space and examine how the status of the space impacts the objects displayed within it.

Echoing the Wallace Collection’s domestic curation, The Middle will be on display in three different spaces within the Museum, displaying enigmatic figurative paintings alongside furniture. By presenting these artworks in the surrounds of Hertford House, The Middle offers a rare opportunity to view contemporary works in direct dialogue with historic fine and decorative art.

Ellis is a British artist, living and working in London and his work has been widely exhibited in the UK and abroad. The Middle sees Ellis’ work being displayed against the opulent backdrop of Hertford House, juxtaposing painting and furniture, the contemporary and the historic, addressing whether these juxtapositions of objects affects their status as art.

From Thursday 15th September, private views of Tom Ellis: The Middle will be available to enhance evening events at the Wallace Collection.
