The Sculpture of Language

Written by Claire Speer, 24th September 2010

This summer Tate Liverpool opened  The Sculpture of Language, curated by Carol Ann Duffy. Opening from 11 June 2010, Duffy's multi-layered and poetic display explores the numerous ways in which artists have engaged with language through their own art, and includes a new poem which the public can re-arrange on a giant magnetic board.

DLA Piper Series: This is Sculpture takes an ambitious and revolutionary look at the history of modern and contemporary sculpture. The display examines and questions the trajectory of artistic innovation in twentieth-century art and beyond.

Sculpture in the form of object, installation, assemblage and ready-made will sit alongside more surprising forms, such as painting, video, photography, language and performance

Works featured range from the surrealist art of Salvador Dalí and René Magritte through to Gillian Wearing.
