This Living Hand: Edmund de Waal presents Henry Moore
31 March – 31 October 2021
Release date: Tuesday, 7 April 2020
This Living Hand, the exhibition curated by artist and writer Edmund de Waal for the Henry Moore Foundation, will be postponed until 2021.
The innovative exhibition, exploring the theme of touch, was originally intended to open on 3 April at Henry Moore’s former home in Hertfordshire. It will now open to the public on 31 March 2021.
Edmund de Waal has placed Moore’s words ‘tactile experience is very important as an aesthetic dimension in sculpture’ at the heart of his exhibition, which also showcases the iconography of the hand in Moore’s works. The postponement will allow visitors to touch works by the sculptor, as originally planned.
