Yorkshire Sculpture International – 100 days celebrating sculpture

About

Exploring sculpture in its many forms by international artists, this festival of sculpture across Leeds and Wakefield builds upon Yorkshire’s rich history as the birthplace of pioneering sculptors Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore. Yorkshire Sculpture International is organised by four world-renowned cultural institutions – the Henry Moore InstituteLeeds Art Gallery, The Hepworth Wakefield and Yorkshire Sculpture Park – and will include major new outdoor commissions across both cities.

The exhibition at The Hepworth Wakefield will feature a series of new commissions and debut UK presentations by established and emerging artists from around the world. Unfolding as a series of encounters across the whole building and interacting with Wakefield’s remarkable collection of modern British art, this will be the first time all of the public spaces within The Hepworth will be used for a single exhibition.

It will bring together artists of different generations who share with both Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore an intense interest in the cultural histories and physical properties of the materials they use – from an expansive installation by German sculptor Wolfgang Laib to new work by Jamaican-Canadian artist Tau Lewis.
