Details

Yorkshire Sculpture International is the UK’s largest dedicated sculpture festival, a series of exhibitions, international commissions, events and learning programmes not seen on a scale anywhere else – with sculpture in its broadest forms on display across four major galleries and outdoors in Leeds and Wakefield.

This first festival builds upon Yorkshire’s rich history as the birthplace of pioneering sculptors, including Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore, and as the home of this unique consortium of galleries and celebrated sculpture collections.

Reflecting the curatorial theme put forward by British artist Phyllida Barlow that ‘sculpture is the most anthropological of the artforms’ the free 100-day festival responds to the idea that there is a basic human impulse to make and connect with objects, and the programme explores what it means to create sculpture today.

On display here at The Hepworth Wakefield are works by Tarek Atoui, Nairy Baghramian, Jimmie Durham, Wolfgang Laib and Tau Lewis.

Events include A Conversation About Sculpture and Place with Huma Bhabha and an Introductory Curator Tours exploring The Hepworth Wakefield.
