Breaking the Mould: Sculpture by Women since 1945
29 May 2021 00:00 - 05 September 2021 00:00
This major new touring exhibition challenges the male-dominated narratives of post-war British sculpture by presenting a diverse and significant range of ambitious work by women.
Breaking the Mould represents the work of over 50 sculptors including Rana Begum, Lygia Clark, Cathy de Monchaux, Elisabeth Frink, Anthea Hamilton, Holly Hendry, Barbara Hepworth, Mary Kelly, Kim Lim, Cornelia Parker, Eva Rothschild, Jann Haworth, Veronica Ryan and Rachel Whiteread. The exhibition also features recent sculptures by Katie Cuddon, Jessie Flood-Paddock and Grace Schwindt, on public display for the first time since acquisition.
The exhibition is accompanied by a fully-illustrated publication produced by Hayward Publishing, featuring fresh writing on the subject by Natalie Rudd, Senior Curator of the Arts Council Collection, and a range of artists, curators and scholars. The exhibition is also supported by resources and activities for everyone and a series of engaging events.
