For the first time this year. four institutions across Leeds and Wakefield – the Henry Moore Institute, Leeds Art Gallery, Hepworth Wakefield and Yorkshire Sculpture Park – are joining forces to present this festival dedicated to sculpture. A series of exhibitions, alongside large-scale commissions by Huma Bhabha, Ayşe Erkmen and Tarek Atoui, probe at a statement by Phyllida Barlow that the event has taken as its central theme: ‘Sculpture is the most anthropological of the art forms.’ Highlights include a survey of the Abstract Expressionist David Smith at YSP and a performance by Opera North at Leeds Art Gallery.
