Alina Szapocznikow @ The Hepworth Wakefield

October 21, 2017 - January 28, 2018

This is the first major UK retrospective of Polish artist Alina Szapocznikow (1926-1973), one of the most important, yet for many years, overlooked artists of the 20th century. The exhibition, Human Landscapes will bring together works spanning Szapocznikow’s career, including a selection of her drawings, which have rarely been publicly displayed.

Szapocznikow’s career was cut short by her premature death in 1973 at the age 47 but her work has been reappraised internationally in the last decade. The exhibition will trace a chronological path through Szapocznikow’s work, highlighting how the artist’s work developed from classically figurative sculptures to her later “awkward objects” which are politically charged and overlaid with Surrealist and Pop Art influences.
