Strange Beasts

Lynn Chadwick and the New Generation

2011 saw the sixtieth anniversary of the Festival of Britain for which the then relatively unknown sculptor Lynn Chadwick was commissioned to make two major works. It therefore seems fitting that they commissioned six young artists to produce new works in response to and inspired by a Chadwick sculpture of their choice.

 

Like Chadwick, Lorraine Robbins, Daniel Sparkes, Gavin McClafferty, Ralph Macartney and duo Cockings & Hodge all have close links with Stroud, having grown up, studied or worked in the area. The results of their challenging brief make an exhibition which will surprise, delight and above all provoke thought, opinion, discussion and debate.

 

Published to accompany the exhibition: Strange Beasts, 25th May - 16th June 2012.
