The Henry Moore Foundation was founded by the artist and his family in 1977 to encourage public appreciation of the visual arts.
Today the Henry Moore Foundation support innovative sculpture projects, devise an imaginative programme of exhibitions and research worldwide, and preserve the legacy of Moore himself: one of the great sculptors of the 20th century.
The Dialogue will be hosted by Sebastiano Barassi, who is the Head of Henry Moore Collections & Programmes. He will give a special tour of the Henry Moore Archive – the world’s leading resource on the life and work of Henry Moore, containing publications, correspondence, images and exhibition material.
Participants will also have the opportunity to see Vitality: The Human Landscapes of Henry Moore – the current exhibition which highlights that for Moore, nature and the human body were sources of vitality, expressions of the life-force.
Before joining the Foundation, Sebastiano Barassi was the Curator of Collections at Kettle's Yard, University of Cambridge and worked at the Courtauld Institute Gallery in London.
