The new group exhibition exploring sculptures that are deliberately designed to fold up, or pack down, or that have been made while on the move.

Portable Sculpture brings together work from 1934 to the present day. Featuring fifteen artists, including Hannelore Baron, Walead Beshty, Louise Bourgeois, Alexander Calder, Marcel Duchamp, Liz Ensz, Barry Flanagan, Mohamad Hafez, Romuald Hazoumè, Charles Hewlings, Do Ho Suh, Veronica Ryan, Andrea Zittel and presenting new work made for the exhibition by James Ackerley and Claire Ashley.

The word ‘sculpture’ is often associated with large, immobile objects that are weighty and permanent, but sculpture is not always fixed in place: sculpture can be mobile, agile and endlessly adaptable.

A series of research events and activities accompanies the exhibition. Including speakers Professor T. J. Demos (University of California, Santa Cruz), Dr Heather Diack (University of Miami), Dr Jo Melvin (University of the Arts London / Barry Flanagan Estate) and artists Claire Ashley and Mohamad Hafez.
