This autumn, the Sainsbury Centre will open a major new exhibition of Suffolk-born artist Elisabeth Frink (1930-1993).


Elisabeth Frink: Humans and Other Animals features over 150 works by the artist, and will be the largest showing of Frink’s work in 25 years. The exhibition will explore Frink’s enduring preoccupation with human and animal forms and the symbiotic relationship between them. It will provide new perspectives on the key themes found in her work, from responses to the Second World War and the Cold War climate of fear, to the role of man as both aggressor and victim. 

Humans and Other Animals will examine Frink’s radical and bohemian beginnings in 1950s London and trace the evolution of her practice over all four decades of her career, as well as juxtaposing her work with that of contemporary artists, ancient art and other modern masters including Rodin, Picasso and Bourgeois

A programme of events inspired by this exhibition will run alongside it, more details will be available soon.
