Renowned artist and Turner Prize winner Anish Kapoor took part in a photocall with Her Blood (1998), a major sculptural work selected by the artist specifically for Manchester Art Gallery’s exhibition space and being shown for the first time in the UK.
Anish Kapoor is known for his sensual and beguiling sculptures, creating his work using a range of tactile materials including pigment, stone, polished stainless steel and wax. Filling Manchester Art Gallery’s main exhibition spaces, this show (5 March – 5 June 2011) gives a unique opportunity to explore Kapoor’s earlier works alongside recent pieces lent directly by the artist, with a selection of significant sculptures on loan from UK collections, and from the Arts Council Collection.
A fantastic must see exhibition at Manchester Art Gallery launched at the start of March with a fine number of press in attendance and lots of great coverage.
