Thought Positions in Sculpture 2015

Friday 16 October 2015 – Saturday 09 January 2016

Huddersfield Art Gallery

The Good, The Bad & The Ugly 2015 bronze

Thought Positions in Sculpture presented contemporary artists who have encountered the archive through the stories of their own art practice. The physical exhibition at Huddersfield Art Gallery refered to existing works of art from Leeds Museums and Galleries Sculpture Collection, archival material from the Henry Moore Institute, digitised archival material from the Tate Gallery, audio material from the British Library and other archival sites, some of which are inventions by the artist themselves.

Intended as a starting point for thinking in, with and through the archive, the exhibition served as a platform and context for different narratives of sculptural thinking. Over the duration of three months, conversation pieces were be generated through this website alongside the physical work on display at Huddersfield Art Gallery.
