Art history abounds with examples of sculptors employing bronze; from scarce, but insightful, Ancient Greek vessels, to the large-scale modernist sculptures of Auguste Rodin, Umberto Boccioni and Alberto Giacometti. Throughout the ages, this alloy has been embraced for its versatility, strength and ability to be cast into both voluminous and intricate forms.
This edition of the annual Sculpture show pays homage to this important material. Although the curated selection within Sculpture 2016: Bronze is unified by medium, this exhibition aims to portray the differing ways contemporary artists manipulate bronze within their sculptural practices.
