The smell of revolution
WAKEFIELD (Great Britain) – The Arts Council of Great Britain’s collection, started in 1946, currently represents 8000 works of art. A selection of paintings and sculptures committed to the various “counter culture” currents from the 60s and the 70s, is presented here in an avant-garde sculpture garden. Outside we only see – or hear - a piece by Susan Philipsz, The Internationale. The viewer discovers the rest inside, in particular a selection from 1977, the real “anti-capitalist” year, in which the sculpture garden was created and the punk movement bloomed in London, such as Destroy London by Knorr and Richon.
• Revolt and Revolutions at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, from 6 January to 15 April 2018.
