Is sculpture the most anthropological of art forms?

Leeds Art Gallery

Yorkshire Sculpture International’s Producer Jane Bhoyroo chaired a round table discussion exploring the Yorkshire Sculpture International festival’s provocation ‘sculpture is the most anthropological of the art forms’. This stimulating debate questioned the statement from different angles, view-points and fields of study.

Panellist Laurence Sillars, Head of the Henry Moore Institute, was joined by experts from diverse fields including Yorkshire Sculpture International exhibiting artist Tau Lewis, Will Rea, Senior Lecturer in Art at University of Leeds and Dr Adam Strickson, Teaching Fellow in Theatre and Writing who all brought a new perspective to the conversation.

This event was part of the Sculpture in the Round Conversations series organised by University of Leeds and Yorkshire Sculpture International.
