Alison Wilding: Making It: Sculpture in Britain 1977–1986

Arts Council Collection Touring Exhibition, 2015–16

Alison Wilding is included in the Arts Council Collection Touring Exhibition (2015–16), Making It: Sculpture in Britain 1977–1986, at Longside Gallery, Yorkshire Sculpture Park; Mead Gallery, Warwick; and City Art Centre, Edinburgh.


The late 1970s and 1980s witnessed the emergence of a younger generation of artists working in the United Kingdom who began to receive international attention for practices which, although incredibly diverse, share a revived interest in the sculpted object, in materials, and in ideas around making. Making It is the first exhibition to survey this exciting moment in British sculpture. 


Drawn primarily from the holdings of the Arts Council Collection and augmented with major loans from important UK public and private collections, Making It is curated by Dr Jon Wood, Research Curator at the Henry Moore Institute in Leeds. The exhibition includes works by over 40 artists including Tony Cragg, Richard Deacon, Antony Gormley, Anish Kapoor and Cornelia Parker, among others.
