Tony Cragg: A Rare Category of Objects

Yorkshire Sculpture Park

NOW CLOSED

The biggest UK exhibition to date by leading sculptor Tony Cragg opens at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park in March. New sculptures, drawings and works drawn from nearly five decades of Cragg’s practice will survey and demonstrate the artist’s pioneering and continued mastery of materials. A ‘radical materialist’, Cragg defines sculpture as a ‘rare category of objects’, and takes a taxonomic approach to his own practice, something which is reflected in the exhibition. With the support of his studio, Cragg makes his sculptures by hand, each evolution of thought taking form and inspiring the next. Find out more about the ‘Tony Cragg’ exhibition from the YSP’s website.
