This major solo exhibition by acclaimed contemporary British sculptor Daniel Silver celebrates the Gallery’s longstanding commitment to sculpture, and making links between historic and contemporary art, in the 60th anniversary year of Jacob Epstein’s death.
Silver is pushing the boundaries of sculpture in new and innovative ways, though clearly acknowledging the legacy of art history, and citing Epstein and Modernist sculpture, as well as classical art, amongst his influences.
This presentation coincides with the Rodin Spotlight Tour from the British Museum in our Collections Galleries and will be Silver’s most ambitious exhibition in the UK to date.
Existing works such as Rock Formations, monumental sculptures collaging stone and bronze heads onto large sections of Carrara marble, will be displayed, alongside new works including a series of Mannequins, inspired by the discovery that a family member was a pioneer in developing fashion mannequins modelled on real people in the 1960s.
Thursday 7 February, 6-8pm.
