Objects and Figures: New Sculpture in Britain

20.11.82 – 08.01.83

An exhibition of new sculpture appearing in Britain, with artists Richard Deacon, Antony Gormley, Anish Kapoor, Tony Cragg, Bill Woodrow, and Shirazeh Houshiary. As the catalogue said, the exhibition was ‘selected to show something of the most exciting and innovative developments in sculpture in Britain.’ A smaller selection of the sculptors’ work was also on display in the Travelling Gallery, which visited schools and galleries in the Edinburgh area at the same time.

The exhibition subsequently toured to the John Hansard Gallery, Southampton.

The catalogue takes the form of a newspaper and includes profiles of each artist and an essay by Michael Newman. It is available at the National Library of Scotland. Click here for details
