Lamb Gallery, Tower Building, University of Dundee
Now open and running until 7th May 2016
(Monday to Friday 9.30am to 7pm; Saturday 1pm to 5pm)
Now open in the University of Dundee's Lamb Gallery on the first floor of the Tower Building, this exhibition features highlights from the University’s extensive sculpture collections.
It includes free-standing and wall-based constructions as well as preparatory drawings, sketch-books and photographic documentation of sculptures that no longer exist. Many are by former students at Duncan of Jordanstone College (including notable graduates such as David Mach) but there are also works here by acclaimed professional sculptors - from Victorian masters such as Sir John Steell to modern artists like Bill Scott, Fred Bushe and Sarah Lucas. The exhibition also includes Enzo Plazzotta’s magnificent bronze portrayal of former rector Peter Ustinov, normally displayed in Bonar Hall.
This is the first exhibition in the gallery since the installation of new lights thanks to a grant from Museums Galleries Scotland – we hope you’ll notice the improvement! A full list of artists represented in the exhibition can be found here.
