A major exhibition at The Henry Moore Foundation in Perry Green, Hertfordshire, will for the first time put on show works by some of the most recognised contemporary artists alongside those of Henry Moore.

The exhibition will be spread across the outdoor landscape at Perry Green as well as in two of the artist’s favourite working spaces on the estate, the Exhibition Gallery and the carving studio, now opened up for the public to visit.   Full details...

 
The exhibition is curated by Anita Feldman, Head of Collections and Exhibitions at The Henry Moore Foundation. A fully illustrated catalogue will be published to coincide with the exhibition. The Foundation will also release for sale a previously unpublished limited edition graphic, Opening Form II (1979).
