Antony Gormley

Presented by deCordova Sculpture Park + Museum

Antony Gormley

Tower Auditorium

Antony Gormley is among the most celebrated sculptors working today. Over the last twenty-five years he has revitalized the human image in sculpture through a radical investigation of the body as a place of memory and transformation, using himself as subject, tool, and material. Since 1990 he has explored the collective body and the relationship between self and other in large-scale installations and projects. Gormley has participated in the prestigious Venice Biennale and Documenta 8, and was awarded theTurner Prize in 1994. The deCordova Sculpture Park + Museum recently acquired Gormley's Reflection II.This talk is made possible by a generous grant from the Grover Cronin Memorial Foundation, and is hosted by MassArt. All attendees will receive a free pass to visit deCordova.
