Tony Cragg at Exhibition Road is a major exhibition of new outdoor sculptures created by one of the most influential British sculptors Tony Cragg for the London 2012 Festival.
Works will go on display by Tony Cragg from 25 August and this will be the first exhibition of sculpture along the newly pedestrianised section of Exhibition Road. Five major new outdoor sculptures will take over Exhibition Road and six indoor works go on display at the V&A, the Science Museum and the Natural History Museum. Ranging up to 5.5m in scale, the works will demonstrate Cragg’s pioneering and ambitious sculptural techniques across a range of materials including bronze, stone, cast iron, steel and wood.
Tony Cragg studied at the Royal College of Art and worked in a studio at the rear of the Science Museum from 1973-77. Cragg’s practice has been directly influenced by the museum collections he found around him during this period and this presentation of his work will see some of his most iconic sculptures placed alongside the artefacts and objects that inspired their creation.
