This major Arts Council Collection survey exhibition seeks to redefine post-war British sculpture by presenting a diverse range of work by artists identifying as women.

The group show celebrates the strengths of sculpture made by women but also seeks to guard against the threat of this work slipping out of view. Through this deliberately restorative act, the exhibition seeks to inspire future generations, supporting the maxim ‘if she can see it, she can be it’.

Sculpture by Women since 1945 represents the work of over 45 sculptors including Barbara Hepworth, Elisabeth Frink, Kim Lim, Cornelia Parker, Rachel Whiteread and Anthea Hamilton.

Sculpture by Women since 1945 will tour to The New Art Gallery Walsall; Djanogly Art Gallery, Nottingham Lakeside Arts; and Ferens Art Gallery, Hull.
