United Enemies

1 December 2011 - 11 March 2012

A museum exhibition which looks at sculpture made by artists in Britain during the 1960s and 1970s, a time when the idea of sculpture was being radically contested. This exhibition includes the work of gallery artist Keith Milow.

The exhibition is structured around three subjects: 'the hand', 'the standing form' and 'the ground'. Across the Institute's galleries pairings and clusters of works spark off each other to demonstrate subtle differences and shared ideas.


United Enemies examines the problem of sculpture in the 1960s and 1970s and reveals how the achievements of the featured artists and artworks facilitated the sculpture of generations to come. The exhibition investigates how our understanding of sculpture today is formed and informed by artists who pushed perceptions of sculpture to its limits during this time of experimentation.
