DLA Piper Series: This is Sculpture takes an ambitious and revolutionary look at the history of modern and contemporary sculpture. This new Tate collection display continues to examine and question the trajectory of artistic innovation in twentieth-century art and beyond.
Sculpture in the form of object, installation, assemblage and ready-made will sit alongside more surprising forms, such as painting, video, photography, language and performance.
In addition, key figures from the cultural arena have been invited to co-curate selected sections of the display. Artist Michael Craig-Martin, designer Wayne Hemingway and his son Jack, and artist, director and writer Tim Etchells offer their own inspiring interpretations of the Tate Collection. Reflecting their own specialist practice, they present us with new ways of seeing and appreciating sculpture.
DLA Piper Series: This is Sculpture includes artists such as Sir Jacob Epstein, Henry Moore, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Arman, Yayoi Kusama, Joseph Beuys, Gilbert & George, Cornelia Parker and Michael Landy.
