60: Sixty Years of Sculpture
Sixty Years of Sculpture in the Arts Council Collection
18 Mar – 25 Jun 2006
2006 was the 60th anniversary of the Arts Council Collection, the most exciting collection of post-war and contemporary British art in the world. A collection without walls of more than 7,500 works, it is loaned to public spaces across the UK and internationally. The Hayward Gallery, which manages the Collection, planned a year-long celebration kicking off with 60, an exhibition which featured sixty key sculptures from Barbara Hepworth to Damien Hirst at the Longside Gallery, YSP, and culminated in a major show at the Hayward in September 2006.
