Currently on show in the Sculpture Study Galleries at the Henry Moore Institute is Shelagh Cluett: Drawing in Space. This exhibition celebrates the recent acquisition by Leeds Museums and Galleries (Henry Moore Institute Archive) of the Shelagh Cluett archive.

Cluett (1947-2007) taught at Chelsea School of Art, where she influenced generations of artists, leading the postgraduate sculpture programme from 1980 to 2007. Drawing in Space brings together sculptures, drawings, sketchbooks and photographic documentation of Cluett's work from the late 1960s to the early 1980s, when she was a student at Hornsey College of Art and Chelsea School of Art, and first emerged on the London scene.

On the occasion of the exhibition, Jo Stockham (artist and Professor of Printmaking, Royal College of Art) and Donald Smith (Director of Exhibitions, Chelsea Space) join Sophie Raikes (curator of the exhibition), Claire Mayoh (Henry Moore Institute Archivist) and Cluett's friends and former colleagues to discuss her work and this display.

The exhibition is on show until 11 March.

This is no charge for this event but booking is essential as places are limited. Please contact Kirstie Gregory -
