British Sculpture Abroad:
1945 to Now
An international conference organised by the Henry Moore Institute in association with Tate Britain
Tate Britain, London
12-13 March 2004
A collaboration between the Henry Moore Institute and Tate Britain, British Sculpture Abroad will examine international readings and perceptions of an art-form peculiarly associated with Britishness. Work backwards, mining the roots of the recent yBa phenomenon in the post-war promotion of modern British art, an international panel of curators, scholars, artists and dealers will consider how sculpture from Britain has been collected, exhibited, understood and assimilated over the last fifty years, in contexts outside of Britain.
Speakers and panelists include Ami Barak, Stuart Brisley, Andrew Causey, Penelope Curtis, Richard Deacon, Veit Görner, Walter Grasskamp, Friedrich Meschede, Henry Meyric Hughes and Karsten Schubert.
For a full programme contact Liz Aston, Henry Moore Institute, via phone or email.
Tickets £30 (£20). For tickets call Tate Britain, 020 7887 8888 or book online www.tate.org.uk/britain
