Join us for this collaborative event, organised with the Paul Mellon Centre for studies in British art.

Over two days, speakers will present new research relating to our Becoming Henry Moore exhibition. Beginning on Friday evening with a reception and keynote speech from one of Britain’s foremost sculptors Tony Cragg, we will then move to Henry Moore Studios & Gardens in Hertfordshire for a full day of talks which will explore not only the work of Henry Moore but also his contemporaries (including Barbara Hepworth and Ossip Zadkine), his education and his inspiration.

Speakers include Cathy Corbett (Courtauld Institute of Art), Inga Fraser (Tate), Alexander Massouras (Ruskin School of Art), Rachel Smith (Tate) and Robert Sutton with introduction by Sebastiano Barassi, Head of Collections & Exhibitions. Chaired by Sarah Turner (Paul Mellon Centre) and Jon Wood (Henry Moore Institute).

Tickets include entry to both Friday and Saturday sessions, plus entry to the Becoming Henry Moore exhibition, sculpture gardens and studios.
