People who have saved this event:



Part of the Yorkshire Sculpture International festival, Woodwork: A Family Tree of Sculpture explores the idea that wood is the most human of materials, as it crosses cultures and time with its plasticity, portability and durability. 

Drawing from our collections, discover works of British sculpture alongside objects from Africa, India, China and Myanmar from our world cultures collection. This marks the first time these two collections have been displayed together at Leeds Art Gallery. 

The exhibition invites audiences to consider the relationship between maker and material, as sculptures usually defined as inherently British reveal their connections to the wider world through the wood from which they were carved.
