Nicholas Pope: Heavenly Space
Venue – New art centre
Dates – 14th May – 30th August 2021
Including sculpture, woodcuts and ceramics representing his experimental, process-driven and materially-focused approach, the show exemplifies the breadth of his work from the late 1970s to the present day. Brought together for the first time, these works communicate Pope’s comic yet deeply contemplative take on the fundamental aspects of what it means to be human.
Heavenly Space coincides with two other exhibitions of Pope’s work in the UK; at the Holburne Museum, Bath, and The Sunday Painter, London, the three concurrent exhibitions together offer an unprecedented overview of his unique contribution to sculpture. Pope (b. 1949, Sydney, Australia) represented Britain at the 1980 Venice Biennale, and previously showed at the New Art Centre in 2013.
