'structure & material: claire barclay, becky beasley, karla black' at the yorkshire sculpture park

31 March 2011

Structure & Material explores the work of three significant young artists who each investigate the way we create meaning through form.

Unlikely sculptural materials such as cosmetics, sugar paper, blackboard paint and brass hinges, or craft in the form of turned wood and tapestry, are employed to diverse and distinctive effect. From elements that are sometimes meagre or over-familiar, new forms are created that are mysterious and highly evocative. Structure & Material features a comprehensive body of work by each artist and includes recent acquisitions from the Arts Council Collection and installations made in response to Longside Gallery.

An Arts Council Collection exhibition curated by Katrina Brown and Caroline Douglas, showing from 31 March 2011 - 26 June 2011.
