Join Tate’s Access and Community teams for an exclusive chance to see Barbara Hepworth: Sculpture for a Modern World. This major exhibition charts her progress from the earliest surviving carvings to the large-scale bronzes of the 1960s. Among the highlights are four large sculptures in sumptuous African hardwood – the high point of her post-war carving career – reunited in one room.

Uniquely, this retrospective shows the way Hepworth’s work was presented or imagined in contexts such as the studio, the theatre, the landscape or with architecture. Alongside sculpture, it features rarely seen textiles, photographs, collages and film, and selected works by her peers and predecessors from Jacob Epstein to Henry Moore.

This evening event includes a BSL interpreted tour, 15-minute pop-up touch tours and an audio description tour. A drop-in artist-lead workshop will also take place throughout the evening using clay and sculpture to respond to the exhibition and Hepworth’s work (no booking or experience required).

If you have any other access needs that you would like to let us know about please contact: Anna Murray, Assistant Curator: Access anna.murray@tate.org.uk or call +44 (0)20 7887 8888
