Anderson’s sculptures entirely mummified in copper thread will create glistening landscapes of beautiful, uncanny and transformed objects. Each piece is an exploration and act of memory.
The exhibition will also feature an immersive experience ‘the Studio’ extending the creative process of the artist’s practice into the gallery. Visitors will be able to spend time mummifying a 1967 Ford Mustang and other smaller objects with copper wire, creating an atmosphere that is at once meditative and communal.
Both the making and display of works pose challenging questions about the comforts and consolations of creating and sharing memories.
One of the leading sculptors of the 20th century. This retrospective of one of Britain’s greatest artists features many of her most significant and beautiful sculptures in wood, stone and bronze alongside rarely seen works.
Barbara Hepworth was born in Yorkshire in 1903. She lived in Cornwall since 1939 and has become principally associated with the art of St Ives and with the sea and landscape of that place. This exhibition presents her in a broader light and spans her whole career.
Hepworth emerged in the late 1920s as a leading member of a new generation of sculptors. Her work became increasingly abstract in the 1930s and, after moving to Cornwall, she began to make sculpture in terms of her experience of landscape. She continued to carve throughout her life, but from 1956 she also made works in bronze which allowed her to produce more and which were better suited to international travel.
This exhibition traces Hepworth’s growing international success offering fresh ways of thinking about her art. Uniquely, this retrospective also plays with the different spaces in which Hepworth presented her work – the show includes an impressive reconstruction of a modernist structure to showcase Hepworth’s ‘ideal’ environment. Among the highlights are four large sculptures in sumptuous African hardwood – the high point in her post war carving career – reunited in one room.
Whaaam! Pop! Kapow! This is pop art, but not as you know it.
Tate Modern is ready to tell a global story of pop art, breaking new ground along the way, and revealing a different side to the artistic and cultural phenomenon.
From Latin America to Asia, and from Europe to the Middle East, this explosive exhibition connects the dots between art produced around the world during the 1960s and 1970s, showing how different cultures and countries responded to the movement.
Politics, the body, domestic revolution, consumption, public protest, and folk – all will be explored and laid bare in eye-popping Technicolor and across many media, from canvas to car bonnets and pinball machines.
The exhibition will reveal how pop was never just a celebration of western consumer culture, but was often a subversive international language of protest – a language that is more relevant today than ever.
Almost Legal Productions present a stage production of the cult comedy classic.
