ARTIST IN FOCUS: ANTONY GORMLEY
Wednesday 16 October 2019
From the British coastline to the rooftops of Manhattan, Antony Gormley’s sculptures are recognised across the world. His ambitious new exhibition at the Royal Academy features work from throughout his career alongside installations created especially for the show. The exhibition explores Gormley’s wide-ranging use of materials, including iron, steel, hand-beaten lead, seawater and clay, and will bring to light rarely-seen early works from the 1970s and 1980s, as well as a selection of his pocket sketchbooks and drawings.
This study day offers a guided visit to the exhibition led by Anna Moszynska who has written two books on the artist. The afternoon tour is preceded by morning talks and informal discussion to help set the work in context.
