YORKSHIRE SCULPTURE INTERNATIONAL at The Hepworth Wakefield

Various locations, Yorkshire, United Kingdom

Saturday, June 22, 2019 - 10:00 to Sunday, September 29, 2019 - 17:00

Yorkshire Sculpture International, the UK’s largest event exploring sculpture,

is a collaboration between the Henry Moore Institute, Leeds Art Gallery,

The Hepworth Wakefield and Yorkshire Sculpture Park. It will feature work

by international artists across the four venues and major new outdoor

sculpture commissions in Leeds and Wakefield. The Hepworth Wakefield

will stage a series of new commissions and debut UK presentations by

established and emerging artists from around the world.

For the first time, all of the gallery’s public spaces will be used, with the

exhibition unfolding as a series of encounters across the whole building,

interacting with Wakefield’s remarkable collection of modern British art.

It will bring together artists of different generations who share with both

Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore an intense interest in harnessing 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.
