Ikon presents a major survey of work by Barry Flanagan, bringing together a selection of the artist’s iconic bronze sculptures (1980s – 90s) alongside earlier works made with rope, sand, cloth, stone, ceramics and light as a sculptural component, largely from the 1960s – 70s.

Curated with Jo Melvin, this exhibition will offer new insights into the interconnectedness of seemingly distinct periods of Flanagan’s forty year career, demonstrating an ongoing experimentation with materials and their properties and a symbiosis between abstraction and figuration.
