Lucky me, I don't need to dream. It’s on my parents’ doorstep and so is another regular haunt for my family.
Suspended over the River Calder The Hepworth was designed by the acclaimed David Chipperfield Architect; I just hope no one decided to ‘tidy’ up the outside as the industrial buildings and barges are just as striking.
The Hepworth is home to an impressive compendium of modern British artists including Ben Nicholson, Patrick Heron, L.S. Lowery, Henry Moore and of course it’s name sake - Barbara Hepworth. But this day we scooted through the main galleries to the special exhibition by Anthony McCall.
Solid Light Works is the first major UK exhibition by the artist in over a decade. The exhibition includes three new ‘solid light’ installations. At first I was with Alison on this one - a quizzical look and a “really?”.
But you need to keep an open mind, so in we went.
Equally fascinating are the many note books and related calculations which the artist need to make to realise the installations.
If you are planning a trip to Yorkshire then the exhibition is on until Sunday 3rd June. In fact, why not stay a few days and follow the Yorkshire Sculpture Triangle? You wont be disappointed.
until next time,
