The freedom of angels – sculpture in a century of upheaval
2 May 2009 to 5 July 2009

An installation of works in various media, from the mid-19th century to the present, reflecting the dramatic shifts in style and technique that have defined the development of modern sculpture.

In the spirit of Michelangelo's remark about 'seeing an angel in a block of marble and carving until I set him free', so too has the story of modern sculpture been a process by which artists have discovered new purpose.
