Reproduction in Sculpture - Dilution or Increase?

10 Dec 1994 – 30 Jan 1995

Upper Sculpture Study Gallery, Leeds Art Gallery

Focusing on the reproductive techniques used in the manufacture of sculpture, this exhibition features work by Jacob Epstein, Alfred Gilbert and Rachel Whiteread - and sculpture where the artist has not touched the work at all.

The issues raised by reproduction in sculpture range from simple questions of technical interest to complex issues of authority, authenticity and ethics. From questions of virtue and quality to political questions relating to the availability and dissemination of knowledge.

In this exhibition the impact of the multiple and the reproduction of sculpture on the history of art is explored by Edward Allington and Ben Dhaliwal through the work of historical and contemporary artists.
