Description

This incredible retrospective spans 20th-century British artist Hepworth's entire career. It charts the development of her practice, her engagement with political and societal change, and tells of the events in her personal life which shaped her work. The exhibition displays some of her most celebrated sculptures including the modern abstract carvings that launched her career, her iconic strung sculptures, and later large-scale bronze and carved sculptures. It also brings insight to Hepworth’s wide-ranging interests – such as dance, theatre, music, religion, politics and science – and show how they infused her artistic practice.
