Sculpture Research Programme

The Henry Moore Institute’s sculpture research programme places sculpture at the centre of current art historical scholarship and actively encourages new research.

We encourage researchers at all levels to seek our advice and make use of our world-class Archive, Library and Sculpture Collections.

Sculpture research at the Henry Moore Institute operates across disciplines and art forms, engaging with performance, drawing, photography or architecture, or with wider fields such as politics or anthropology.

We pride ourselves on being a hub of contact and exchange, generating and supporting research networks that extend beyond the confines of academia.

Research Seasons

Each year our research programme is organised into specific areas of enquiry, explored through themed Research Seasons. Each season includes a range of research events, conferences, lectures, film screenings and discussions, designed to showcase new thinking on different aspects of sculpture.
