Bainbridge, Eric (2015) Making It -Sculpture in Britain 1977-1986. Making It: Sculpture in Britain 1977-1986, 01 Apr - 21 Jun 2015, Longside Gallery, Yorkshire Sculpture Park, UK (touring).

Item Type: Show/Exhibition


Survey exhibition of this period in British sculpture.( 44 artists)

The late 1970s and 1980s witnessed the emergence of a younger generation of artists working in the UK who began to receive international attention for practices which, although incredibly diverse, share a revived interest in the sculpted object, in materials, and in ideas around making. Making It is the first exhibition to survey this exciting moment in British sculpture. It shows how approaches to object making were reinvigorated by the breakthroughs in conceptual and performance art made by preceding generations and by sculptural and cultural inspirations from beyond these shores.
