Publication Date 2015

Accompanying the first major retrospective of Barbara Hepworth’s work in London since 1968, this ground-breaking new publication focuses on the spaces and contexts, physical and conceptual, in which the artist is positioned. It examines her interest in staging and presenting work indoors and out, in studio, film, garden, stage, architecture, photography and print.
As well as setting her work in relation to her British and international contemporaries, a broad range of distinguished contributors also consider wider technical and intellectual concerns.

Richly illustrated with over 200 colour images drawn from her entire career, the catalogue represents some of Hepworth’s best known works as well as introducing less familiar pieces. It also features previously unseen documentary material, including photographs and film stills that cast new light on one of the twentieth century’s greatest artists.

Penelope Curtis is Director, Tate Britain, Chris Stephens is Lead Curator, Modern British Art, Tate Britain, Contributors include Helena Bonnet, Lee Beard, Sophie Bowness, Ann Compton, Inga Fraser, Valerie Holman, Lucy Kent, and Rachel Smith.
