This major solo exhibition by acclaimed contemporary sculptor Daniel Silver celebrates the Gallery's longstanding commitment to sculpture.
Silver pushes the boundaries of sculpture in new and innovative ways though clearly acknowledging the legacy of art history, and citing Jacob Epstein and Modernist sculpture, as well as classical art, among his influences.
In the 60th anniversary year of Epstein's death, this exhibition makes links between historic and contemporary art and is Silver's largest exhibition in a UK public gallery to date.
On display is an ealier work Rock Formations – monumental sculptures collaging stone and bronze heads onto large sections of Carrara marble – alongside new works including a series using manipulated shop mannequins which links classical and contemporary depictions of the human body.
This presentation coincides with the Rodin Spotlight Tour from the British Museum.
