Josephsohn Exhibition at
 Yorkshire Sculpture Park

Opening May 10, 2013

May 11, 2013 to April 27, 2014

Yorkshire Sculpture Park in the English town of Wakefield near Leeds is a center for sculpture with an international focus. Here one can see regular outdoor and indoor exhibitions of artists working in sculpture of various generations—in recent years, for example, Henry Moore, Anish Kapoor, David Nash, and Sophie Ryder. Yorkshire Sculpture Park, which was established in 1977, in the meantime has come to receive some 300,000 visitors each year.

In May 2013 it will be possible to see an exhibition with works by Josephsohn on the “Formal Terrace” dating from the 19th century and in the garden area in front of it as well as in the rooms of the “Boothy Gallery.” Although the presentation is not designed as a retrospective, works from all phases of Hans Josephsohn’s career will be presented. The focus of the exhibition is, however, on the central work group of the large reclining figures and half figures from the last twenty years of Josephsohn’s working life.

The exhibition, which was initiated by Clare Lilley, the artistic director of the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, is realized in cooperation with the Kesselhaus Josephsohn/Galerie Felix Lehner in St.Gallen and Hauser & Wirth.
