This exhibition offers a fascinating insight into Smith’s outstanding contribution to sculpture. It begins with his earliest sculptural experiments and continues with a presentation of iconic works created later in his career. Highlights include the ground-breaking Agricolas, which were conceived as drawings in space, a group of the Voltri pieces and the figurative symbolic works, the Sentinels and the Tanktotems. It’s a rare opportunity to discover why Smith’s career has had such a lasting impact on the development of twentieth-century sculpture.
