Sculpture in the Garden

Bringing the Outside In
May 13, 2016

'Sculpture in the Garden’ was the second exhibition in the series created by Pangolin London, which started with ‘Sculpture in the Home’ in 2014 which celebrated the touring exhibitions curated by the Arts Council England in the 1940s and ‘50s. These exhibitions offer an opportunity to view sculpture in a fresh and different way and encourage audiences to engage with sculpture beyond the traditional gallery or museum setting.


For Sculpture in the Garden Pangolin London collaborated with local charity Global Generation who run the nearby Skip Garden & Café in King’s Cross and focus on using gardening to build communities. Intended to inspire the viewer to consider sculpture as a valid addition to any outdoor space - whether it be the smallest urban roof terrace or largest country garden - this exhibition was the first of its kind. The show ranged from established sculptors such as Lynn Chadwick, Ann Christopher, William Tucker and Peter Randall-Page to emerging sculptors, all working on a variety of scales and budgets.
