Year of Sculpture 2019

'Sculpture is something you bump into when you back up to look at a painting' — Ad Reinhardt
What is sculpture? From traditional stone, wood, plaster and metal – to contemporary sound, performance and digital media, join us for a year-long programme to explore what sculpture means today.
Look out for new installations and free exhibitions popping up inside and outside our museums throughout the year. The full programme will be announced in 2019.
