Joana Vasconcelos: Beyond

Yorkshire Sculpture Park, near Wakefield

In line with government legislation, all indoor galleries are temporarily closed.

Sculptures in the open air remain accessible from 5 November, including six works by Joana Vasconcelos, which are especially vibrant against the glorious colours of autumn.

Celebrated Portuguese artist Joana Vasconcelos creates vibrant, often monumental sculpture, using fabric, needlework and crochet alongside everyday objects from saucepans to wheel hubs. She frequently uses items associated with domestic work and craft to comment from a feminist perspective on national and collective identity, cultural tradition and women’s roles in society.

Vasconcelos’ work has been recognised with major exhibitions at the Palace of Versailles, Paris (2012), where she was the first woman and youngest artist to present a solo exhibition; and Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao (2018), where she was the first Portuguese artist to present a solo exhibition.
