Tony Cragg: Sculptures and Drawings

The Show

Tony Cragg’s first museum show in Britain for more than a decade, this exhibition features around fifty major sculptures, some of which are on a huge scale and are sited in the Gallery’s grounds.

Cragg has brought an investigative, intuitive approach to sculpture, using an extraordinary range of materials. He came to prominence in the late 1970s for works composed of brightly coloured plastic objects, but since the mid-1980s has worked extensively in other materials such as bronze, glass, stainless steel and wood.

Focusing mainly on Cragg’s work from the past fifteen years, this exhibition offers visitors the opportunity to see new work by one of the world’s greatest living sculptors.
