Lynn Chadwick’s monumental sculpture The Watchers features alongside works by Rodin and Miró as part of Art of the Open Air, which opens on 11 February at The San Diego Museum of Art. This is a rare opportunity to see one of the most significant works from the museum’s internationally renowned sculpture collection, which has not been on view for a number of years. The position of the work has been carefully chosen, allowing viewers to appreciate how art can engage with the environment.
As part of Blain|Southern Berlin’s Group Show, several small-scale bronze sculptures by Chadwick will be exhibited for the first time. On view from 16 February, the sculptures link back to the major retrospective in 2014when the vast gallery space became populated by the artist’s large scale beasts welded from stainless steel.
Chadwick’s work can also be seen as part of Out There - Our Post War Public Art, Historic England’s first major exhibition, at Somerset House from 3 February - 10 April 2016. The exhibition will tell the story of key public art created between 1945-1985, following the fortunes of site specifics works and sculptures by pioneering artists including Barbara Hepworth, Henry Moore, Ralph Brown and Elisabeth Frink. Trigon was originally acquired in 1963 by the Harlow Arts Trust which played a major role in the public art scheme for Harlow New Town, built to alleviate the housing pressure of an expanding population following wartime damage.Back to news
