Exhibition at Sunny Bank Mills Gallery, Leeds, curated by MA Art Gallery and Museum Studies student Alice Chandler.
Traditionally, stone, metal, clay, and wood were carved, moulded, and cast to make sculpture.
All 15 of the artists consider the role of craft in sculpture and the exciting juxtapositions that materials can initiate. The artists work across different disciplines; from sculpture, to textiles, moving image and craft, with an exciting range of materials and processes.
Funded by Arts Council and curated by MA student Alice Chandler, Material Matters is accompanied by a new catalogue featuring artist interviews, essays, images, and a new poem by the artist Stephen Harvey (Pyramid Arts).
A series of sculpture focussed workshops will be taking place in July.
