About

Paolozzi's main sculptural work in the 1950s consisted of large bronzed forms that resembled lumbering monsters, half organic, half machine. As the decade continued these creatures began to morph into architectural forms reminiscent of sideboards and elaborate fire-surrounds. Ben Highmore, Professor of Cultural Studies at the University of Sussex, will explore this progression with reference to the artist's life and the relationship between sculpture and architecture.
