Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery Spring Exhibition
Marking what would have been his 99th birthday, Sir Anthony Caro (1924–2013), widely regarded as one of the 20th century’s most influential sculptors, is the subject of the Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery spring exhibition which opened on 9 March.
Preparation for the Pitzhanger spring exhibition involved Mtec handling the transportation and installation of some significant Caro work. The exhibition focuses on the resurgence and development of architectural themes within Caro’s sculpture, exploring contained space in relation to human figure, architectural features such as doors, passages and steps, as well as specific materials including coloured Perspex, which echoes John Soane’s use of stained glass.
Highlighted work being exhibited includes The Child’s Tower Room (1983-1984), the earliest work on display and Autumn Rhapsody (2012–2013) created towards the end of Caro’s life.
