22 January - 7 April 2011. Described by critics as a blockbuster, this show at the Royal Academy traces the evolution of sculpture in Britain since the beginning of the 20th century.
Considered controversial by some, its comprehensive overview of British sculpture juxtaposes giants such as Henry Moore against contemporary, young artists like Damien Hirst. As such, viewers are obliged to leave their previously-held conceptions at the door and reappraise the diverse and combined legacy of British sculptors. Featuring key works by Phillip King, Jacob Epstein, Barbara Hepworth and Anthony Caro.
