United Enemies: The Problem of Sculpture in Britain in the 1960s and 1970s

Henry Moore Institute

1 December 2011 – 11 March 2012

United Enemies looks at sculpture made by artists in Britain during the 1960s and 1970s, a time when the idea of sculpture was being radically contested.

Cutting across practices, institutions, publications and exhibitions, the exhibition begins with Roelof Louw's Soul City (Pyramid of Oranges), a work containing over 6,000 oranges painstakingly composed in order to be physically participated in and enjoyed " the pyramid depletes as visitors help themselves to oranges.
