A conversation about sculpture and place with Huma Bhabha

Sat 22 June 2019, 2 - 4pm

On the opening day of Yorkshire Sculpture International, world-renowned artist Huma Bhabha will discuss her work, influences and major new commission for the centre of Wakefield, with Yorkshire Sculpture Park’s Director of Programme, Clare Lilley.

Working almost entirely in figurative sculpture, Bhabha’s approach is unconventional and cross-cultural, making connections between histories, languages and civilisations.

This conversation will provide a starting point for a wider discussion about sculpture and place, chaired by University of Leeds Associate Professor Dr Joanne Crawford. Panellists from a wide range of backgrounds will consider ‘who is sculpture for?’, ‘what role does it play in society?’ and ‘where and how it is located?’

This event is part of the Sculpture in the Round Conversations series organised by University of Leeds and Yorkshire Sculpture International
