Sculpture in Focus

Polly Morgan, Myocardial Infarction, 2013,
Taxidermy sculpture

To coincide with the 60th anniversary year of Jacob Epstein’s death, in 2019 we are celebrating sculpture in all forms throughout our Collections programme.


The Sculpture in Focus trail positions a key piece of contemporary sculpture from our Permanent Collection within each of our ten themed collection rooms, featuring diverse artists including Henri Gaudier-Brzeska, Polly Morgan, Bob and Roberta Smith and Hermione Wiltshire, continuing our tradition of making links between historic and contemporary art.
