Making It: Sculpture in Britain 1977-1986

Exhibition Location: Longside Gallery, Yorkshire Sculpture Park: 1 April - 21 June 2015
ISBN Code: 978 1 85332 329 4
Physical Description:

The late 1970s and 1980s witnessed the emergence of a younger generation of artists working in the United Kingdom who began to receive international attention for practices which, although incredibly diverse, shared a revived interest in the sculpted object, in materials and in ideas around making.

Some of these artists, such as Kate Blacker, Tony Cragg, Richard Deacon, Antony Gormley, Shirazeh Houshiary, Anish Kapoor, Richard Wentworth and Alison Wilding, rose to prominence under the loose banner ‘New British Sculpture’, while other artists, such as Eric Bainbridge, Helen Chadwick, Julian Opie, Cornelia Parker and Richard Wilson, were forging reputations for their innovative approaches to sculpture.

Making It: Sculpture in Britain 1977­1986 provides a comprehensive insight into the explosion of contemporary sculpture in Britain during the late 1970s and 1980s, launching the careers of some the most re­nowned contemporary artists that the UK has produced.

Artists featured are Edward Allington, Eric Bainbridge, Kate Blacker, Helen Chadwick, John Cobb, Stephen Cox, Tony Cragg, Richard Deacon, Kenneth Draper, Gareth Fisher, Barry Flanagan, John Gibbons, Antony Gormley, Ian Hamilton Finlay, Tim Head, Shirazeh Houshiary, Anish Kapoor, Michael Kenny, Andrew Logan, David Nash, Martin Naylor, Julian Opie, Eduardo Paolozzi, Emma Park, Cornelia Parker, Carl Plackman, Elizabeth Rosser, Veronica Ryan, Michael Sandle, Geoffrey Smedley, William Tucker, William Turnbull, Jean-Luc Vilmouth, Richard Wentworth, Alison Wilding, Richard Wilson and Gary Woodley.

Through these works, Higgie teases out common themes, from joy and loneliness to storytelling and theatricality, exploring the limits of painting and figurative representation.

One Day, Something Happens presents a personal journey through contemporary figurative art, and includes an illuminating essay by Higgie, alongside interviews in which she discusses the practice of figurative paintings with five of the featured artists.
