The 2017 Art Out Loud festival at Chatsworth features an impressive array of high-profile speakers from the worlds of art and fashion.
Now in its third year, the festival runs from Friday 22 until Sunday 24 September and promises talks from artists, curators and writers including Grayson Perry, Yinka Shonibare MBE and Phyllida Barlow, whose talk is sponsored by Sotheby’s.
For Grayson Perry it is a return visit to Art Out Loud following a sell-out appearance at the inaugural event in 2015 and the artist is promising a talk in which he will “go off on one” about art, gender and politics.

Other fashion highlights include Lady Burlington talking about her personal involvement in bringing House Style to Chatsworth and Sotheby’s Jonquil O’Reilly on the fashion excesses depicted in the period paintings that adorn the walls of the house.
Speaking about this year’s festival, Sheron Reynolds, Director of Art Out Loud, said: “We’re thrilled that at Art Out Loud 2017, in addition to the many fascinating talks about art, several will be about fashion, reflecting the theme of the hugely successful House Style exhibition – and that Grayson Perry, something of a walking (and talking) fashion icon will be returning to Art Out Loud. With its wide range of speakers, we hope Art Out Loud 2017 will provide ‘something for everyone’ while at the same time offering in-depth insights into the work of some extraordinary individual artists, curators writers – and fashion designers.”
Art Out Loud runs from 22—24 September 2017 at Chatsworth House, and is proudly sponsored by Sotheby's.
