Modern British sculpture in Gloucester

Sarah Lucas, Stanway John, concrete and bronze, 2008

Gloucester Cathedral, in association with Pangolin Editions (the sculpture foundry in Chalford, nr Stroud), is hosting an exhibition of modern British sculpture entitled Crucible. The 76 works on show include sculptures by an impressive list of artists, including, Sarah Lucas, Damien Hirst, Antony Gormley, Marcus Harvey, Lynn Chadwick, Eduardo Paolozzi, Phillip King...
The exhibition runs until 30th October, 2010.

Crucible, has been tagged, in its publicity, as the sculpture exhibition of the decade; while that remains to be judged, the Royal Academy of Arts has announced its forthcoming major survey show, Modern British Sculpture, which may well be the sculpture show of the next decade. It will run from 22nd January – 7th April 2011. More on that story, later.
