Barbara Hepworth: Art and Life

Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art (Modern Two)

This major retrospective spans the career of one of Britain’s most celebrated 20th Century sculptors. It charts Hepworth’s development as an artist, telling how events in art, the political world, and her passion for dance, theatre, music, religion, and science all shaped her work. It features more than 120 artworks, including renowned sculptures as well as rarely seen drawings and paintings.

Art and Life displays some of Hepworth’s most celebrated sculptures including the modern abstract carvings that launched her career, her iconic strung sculptures, and later large-scale bronze and carved sculptures.

FOR FAMILIES: Explore a Sculpture Tour around the grounds of the Modern which features work by Hepworth.

Art and Life has been curated by Eleanor Clayton and organised by The Hepworth Wakefield in collaboration with the National Galleries of Scotland, and Tate St Ives.

Supported by players of People’s Postcode Lottery.
