Here, There And Somewhere In Between
The Royal Academy at Hatfield House
30 March—29 September 2013
Hatfield House. June 2012. In spring 2013 the historic gardens of Hatfield House will present a group of sculptural works by six Royal Academicians. This is the first time that the Royal Academy of Arts has collaborated with another organisation to curate an exhibition of Royal Academicians’ sculpture outside the Royal Academy.
The sculpture programme at Hatfield House was introduced a few years ago for the enjoyment of its many visitors and to reflect the personal interest of the Marquess and Marchioness of Salisbury in modern and contemporary art.
The Royal Academicians showing work are: Ann Christopher,
and Bill Woodrow,
who were elected to the Royal Academy as sculptor Members, and Michael Craig-Martin
and Gary Hume,
who were elected as painters but for whom sculpture is a significant part of their artistic output.
The title of the exhibition Here, There And Somewhere In Between, not only suggests the positioning of each work across the reaches of the gardens, but also intimates the movement across the group of works from figurative to abstract with many occupying a position in the middle.
