Anish Kapoor: Flashback

The exhibition by the Turner Prize-winning artist is organised by the Arts Council Collection and is part of their Flashback series which presents early pieces from the Collection alongside recent work to give an insight into the evolution of key figures in British art. This is the first survey of Kapoor's work to be held in the UK, outside of London.

On display will be Kapoor’s sensual and intriguing sculptures which he created using a range of materials including pigment, stone, and polished stainless steel.

The show has been selected by the artist and includes works such as White Sand, Red Millet, Many Flowers (1982) which demonstrates Kapoor’s early interest in applying raw pigment to a range of organic forms.

Alongside this, the optically illusionary Untitled (1995) is a highly polished stainless steel void embedded into the wall that draws the viewer into a seemingly bottomless reflection and is representative of the mirrored forms that have made Kapoor a household name.

Caroline Douglas, Head of the Arts Council Collection, said: “After one of the most successful tours of any Arts Council Collection exhibition, we are very proud to bring Anish Kapoor’s Flashback show to our Longside Gallery at Yorkshire Sculpture Park. The show here assembles major pieces from throughout his career drawn from public collections in the UK and is a testament to the richness and vibrancy of museum collections in this country.”

Clare Lilley, Director of Programme at YSP, said: “This is a really important project and it’s fantastic that one of the world’s greatest living artists can now be seen in Yorkshire. Kapoor’s work with the Olympics times perfectly with this exhibition.”

Entry to the exhibition is free though parking charges do apply. Longside Gallery is a 2km walk from the YSP Centre or a free shuttle bus is available. Longside Gallery is open daily from 11–4.
