Yorkshire Sculpture International

Yorkshire Sculpture International

22/06/2019 - 29/09/2019 - All Day

A celebration of sculpture in all its forms, Yorkshire Sculpture International is presented by four world-renowned cultural institutions based in Leeds and Wakefield – the Henry Moore Institute, Leeds Art Gallery, The Hepworth Wakefield and Yorkshire Sculpture Park, across 100 days this summer.

This first festival builds upon Yorkshire’s rich history as the birthplace of pioneering sculptors, including Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore, and as the home of this unique consortium of galleries and celebrated sculpture collections.

Reflecting the theme put forward by British artist Phyllida Barlow that ‘sculpture is the most
anthropological of the artforms’ the free 100-day festival responds to the idea that there is a basic human impulse to make and connect with objects, and the programme will explore what it means to create sculpture today.

At Leeds Art Gallery, we will be showing new work by Nobuko Tsuchiya, Rachel Harrison, Joanna Piotrowska and Damien Hirst.

Ziff Gallery – Damien Hirst
Small Lyons Gallery – Rachel Harrison
Large Lyons Gallery – Joanna Piotrowska
White Gallery – Nobuko Tsuchiya
Central Court Gallery – Ayse Erkman
Sculpture Galleries – Woodwork: A Family Tree of Sculpture

Ayşe Erkmen has created a new site-specific work for Leeds Art Gallery, which will be displayed in the Central Court Gallery.

Across our YSI partner sites, see work by leading international artists, including Rashid Johnson (Henry Moore Institute), Wolfgang Laib and Tau Lewis (The Hepworth Wakefield) and David Smith (Yorkshire Sculpture Park).

Yorkshire Sculpture International

Yorkshire Sculpture International

22/06/2019 - 29/09/2019 - All Day

A celebration of sculpture in all its forms, Yorkshire Sculpture International is presented by four world-renowned cultural institutions based in Leeds and Wakefield – the Henry Moore Institute, Leeds Art Gallery, The Hepworth Wakefield and Yorkshire Sculpture Park, across 100 days this summer.

This first festival builds upon Yorkshire’s rich history as the birthplace of pioneering sculptors, including Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore, and as the home of this unique consortium of galleries and celebrated sculpture collections.

Reflecting the theme put forward by British artist Phyllida Barlow that ‘sculpture is the most
anthropological of the artforms’ the free 100-day festival responds to the idea that there is a basic human impulse to make and connect with objects, and the programme will explore what it means to create sculpture today.

At Leeds Art Gallery, we will be showing new work by Nobuko Tsuchiya, Rachel Harrison, Joanna Piotrowska and Damien Hirst.

Ziff Gallery – Damien Hirst
Small Lyons Gallery – Rachel Harrison
Large Lyons Gallery – Joanna Piotrowska
White Gallery – Nobuko Tsuchiya
Central Court Gallery – Ayse Erkman
Sculpture Galleries – Woodwork: A Family Tree of Sculpture

Ayşe Erkmen has created a new site-specific work for Leeds Art Gallery, which will be displayed in the Central Court Gallery.

Across our YSI partner sites, see work by leading international artists, including Rashid Johnson (Henry Moore Institute), Wolfgang Laib and Tau Lewis (The Hepworth Wakefield) and David Smith (Yorkshire Sculpture Park).
