Metal and Motion: Contemporary Sculpture

Organised and toured by Brighton Museum and Art Gallery with support from the Henry Moore Foundation

Mon 25 Apr – Sat 11 Jun 1988

This exhibition explores three major themes: the development of metal sculpture from the 1960s and 1970s, contemporary aspects of kinetic art and the inter-relationship between ‘craft’ and ‘sculpture’. It includes work by Zadok Ben-David, Kate Blacker, Kevin Atherton and Shelagh Cluett. The influence of Tinguely and Roland Emmett is evident in much of this work where wit plays a large part and demands a response from the viewer.

Also supported by the Arts Council of Great Britain
