Hepworth visit and some questions about curating


The Art Academy took a trip to the Hepworth to see the Hepworth Prize for Sculpture 2017.

Phyllida Barlow's impressive work was a favourite, and evoked strong feelings. Helen Marten's carefully considered sculptures raised issues around curating, the buying and transportation of sculptural works comprised of many pieces.

Hepworth's maquettes were fascinating, as was the building itself.

And as with other Art Academy visits, we talked and plotted future collaborations.
