Arts Council Collection Curators’ Day 29 July 2019

Joshua, our Assistant Curator went along to the Curators’ Day organised by the Arts Council Collection, in Leeds and Wakefield to see what Yorkshire Sculpture International had to offer.

The festival was produced by the Henry Moore Institute, The Hepworth Wakefield, Leeds Art Gallery and Yorkshire Sculpture Park, and features work by international artists across the venues, as well as major new outdoor sculpture commissions across public spaces in Leeds and Wakefield. The festival reflected on the curatorial theme propositioned by Phyllida Barlow that ‘sculpture is the most anthropological of the art forms’.

As well as seeing the YSI festival, we had chance to see other exhibitions in the area, visiting The Art House, Longside Gallery, The Tetley and Index Festival.

Here are some photos of his highlights:
