Our statement regarding the exhibition at Cragside:

“We know it is not unusual for some people to dislike or disagree with what they see in contemporary art. This temporary exhibition at Cragside was not about censoring art or being politically correct, but to encourage people to look at the collection differently and stimulate debate.

“We encourage our properties to test new ways of telling their stories and there are countless examples of where that works. Sometimes it doesn’t work as we intended and we accept the feedback we have received.

“As with all exhibitions, we listen to all views in guiding how we plan future activity.”
