That Beautiful Pale Face is My Fate

That Beautiful Pale Face is My Fate (For Lord Byron) took place within Newstead Abbey, the ancestral home of Lord Byron. Works by eight artists (Ulla Van Brandenburg, Pablo Bronstein, Marcia Farquhar, Blue Firth, Linder, Goshka Macuga, David Noonan, Alexis Marguerite Teplin) were installed amongst Byron's furniture and personal effects, aiming to commune with Byron’s romantic outlaw spirit.

The exhibition took place 26 July 2008 - 07 September 2008 and was the third instalment of 'Histories of the Present', Nottingham Contemporary’s pre-opening programme of exhibitions and events at historical sites in and around Nottingham
