2004 - Off the Beaten Track

A striking feature of Longside Gallery is its vast wall of windows offering stunning views across Yorkshire Sculpture Park. The unique setting provided the perfect backdrop for Off The Beaten Track - an exhibition of sculpture and works on paper from the Arts Council Collection on the theme of outdoor exploration. Off The Beaten Track presented over 25 works to reveal the many ways in which artists have approached the subject of landscape from the 1970s to the present day.




The Arts Council Collection is the UK's most widely seen collection of modern and contemporary art.

With more than 8,000 works by over 2,000 artists, it can be seen in exhibitions and public displays across the country and beyond. This website offers unprecedented access to the Collection, and information about each work can be found on this site.
