Making It - Sculpture in Britain 1977-1986

Making It: Sculpture in Britain 1977-1986

The late 1970s and 1980s witnessed the emergence of a talented generation of UK-based artists, since acclaimed for producing diverse bodies of work that share a revived interest in sculpture as a material object and ideas around making. Although many of these artists would go on to gain a huge international acclaim as individuals, their work has rarely been explored together since it exploded onto the art scene.

Beautifully illustrated, with texts by the period's key figures - including Iwona Blazwick, Richard Cork, Nicholas Logsdail and Sandy Nairne - and an in-depth essay by Jon Wood, Making It: Sculpture in Britain 1977-1986 investigates the emergence and continuing influence of this decisive moment in British Art.
