Acclaimed British sculptor Phyllida Barlow RA takes over RA contemporary galleries with large-scale new works – made with her signature everyday and industrial materials.

About

Phyllida Barlow is a British sculptor, well-known for using materials such as plaster, cardboard and cement, which turn the conventions of traditional sculpture on its head. Her best-known works include the Tate Britain Commission 2014, and her installation for the 2017 Venice Biennale British Pavilion, where she represented the UK.

This spring, experience entirely new sculptures by the artist in the Gabrielle Jungels-Winkler Galleries. Towering above like seemingly precarious structures, these site-specific works both test and take inspiration from the gallery’s architecture. In the form of a ‘cul-de-sac’, with only one way in and out, it gives visitors the freedom to find their way between them.

Alongside her own work, Barlow had a long career as a fine art teacher, including Professor of Fine Art and Director of Undergraduate Studies at the Slade until 2009, and Chelsea College of Art and Design before that. She was elected as a Royal Academician in 2011 and was also part of last year’s Selection Committee for the 250th Summer Exhibition.
