DLA Piper Series: This is Sculpture takes an ambitious and revolutionary look at the history of modern and contemporary sculpture. This new Tate collection display continues to examine and question the trajectory of artistic innovation in twentieth-century art and beyond.
Sculpture in the form of object, installation, assemblage and ready-made will sit alongside more surprising forms, such as painting, video, photography, language and performance.
In addition, key figures from the cultural arena have been invited to co-curate selected sections of the display. Previous contributors to DLA Piper Series: This is Sculpture include director and artist Tim Etchells, designer Wayne Hemingway and his son Jack, singer-songwriter Marianne Faithful and hat designer Phillip Treacy.
Free tours of DLA Piper Series: This is Sculpture are available daily, just ask in the foyer.
Please note that some of the spaces in This is Sculpture may close for installation work for short periods of time. Please call ahead of your visit if you would like further details.
