The Henry Moore Institute is dedicated to celebrating sculpture. We welcome everyone to experience, study and enjoy sculpture.

We are an international research centre located in the vibrant city of Leeds, where Henry Moore began his training as a sculptor. In our iconic building we host a year-round changing programme of historical, modern and contemporary exhibitions presenting sculpture from across the world.

The Institute is a hub for sculpture, connecting a global network of artists and scholars. As a part of the Henry Moore Foundation, an independent arts charity, it is our mission to bring people together to think about why sculpture matters.
