      EVENT DETAILS
      Barry Flanagan

      Ikon presents a major survey of work by Barry Flanagan, bringing together a selection of the artist’s iconic bronze sculptures (1980s – 90s) alongside earlier works made with rope, sand, cloth, stone, ceramics and light as a sculptural component, largely from the 1960s – 70s.

      Curated with Jo Melvin, this exhibition will offer new insights into the interconnectedness of seemingly distinct periods of Flanagan’s forty year career, demonstrating an ongoing experimentation with materials and their properties and a symbiosis between abstraction and figuration. It challenges the supposition that Flanagan’s later works represent a marked shift in the artist’s approach to art-making. Rather, they represent the distillation of Flanagan’s decades-long fascination with ontology, movement and the physicality of the various materials with which he worked.
