First performed in 1961 at Yoko Ono's loft in New York, 'Slant Board' consists of a 45-degree-angled wooden ramp that exists both as a sculpture and the setting for a ten-minute performance. Performances take place outside the building on 10 November, and then every Wednesday at 5:30pm once 'Slant Board' takes up residence in the galleries from 3 February.

24 November 2014
Ceal Floyer, 'Silent Movie' (2014)

Between 24 and 26 November, Ceal Floyer makes 'Silent Movie' in Leeds, responding to the Institute's site and place in the city. The result is projected inside the galleries from 3 February.

8 December 2014, 12 noon
Roman Signer, 'Chair' (2014)

Signer's momentary sculptures defy the rules of gravity to achieve the seemingly impossible, with often a humorous and surprising result. This event involves an object that will, from 3 February, be displayed in the galleries.

22 December 2014, 5.30pm
Simon Martin, 'Lemon 03 Generations (Turn it Around version)' (2014)

This projected image is a study of the interplay between light, shadow and a solid object through a digitally originated and processed version of Hollis Frampton's film 'Lemon' (1969). As an event, it is projected onto the Institute's façade, set to a soundtrack mixed from sounds, voices and 1990s music that blares into the city; once in the galleries it is listened to on headphones.

5 January 2015, 4pm
Maria Nordman, 'Fluiens Circulus'

Since 1967 Nordman has realised sculptures with members of the public. Here she invites persons aged six to eight to work with her on a sculpture that was first presented beside a group of works by Henry Moore at Kröller-Müller Museum, Netherlands. From 3 February, three of her 'Standing Pictures' sculptures occupy spaces filled with natural light inside the Institute building.

19, 20, 21 January 2015, 11am-5.30pm
Lara Favaretto, 'Doing' (1998/2015)
Courtesy of the artist and Galleria Franco Noero, Turin

'Doing' is a study of making and unmaking sculpture. Standing directly outside the Henry Moore Institute and armed with a chisel and hammer, performers are tasked with reducing solid blocks of marble into dust, with only the sounds finding their way into the galleries.

2 February 2015, late afternoon onwards
Tino Sehgal, 'Kiss' (2002)

Tino Sehgal choreographs situations that explore key sculptural problems of the body, form and movement, working with dancers and non-professionals. 'Kiss' begins in the late afternoon and runs continually before it moves its way directly into the galleries at 11am on 3 February, where it continues until the very moment the exhibition closes.

3 February 2015, 11am
Galleries reopen

16 February 2015
Urs Fischer

Urs Fischer's contribution to The Event Sculpture will encompass both performance and object in an open process that is neither mediated nor premeditated. Working with clay, the artist will make a sculpture on-site in front of the Henry Moore Institute.

2 March 2015 5.30pm
Anthony McCall, 'Traveling Wave' (1972/2013)
Courtesy of the artist and Sprüth Magers Berlin London

Originally made in 1972, lost, then re-made in 2013, 'Traveling Wave' launches the sound of an ocean wave rolling through the Institute, moving between the corridor and the galleries, where it both interrupts and co-exists with the other works on show.

Events by Roman Signer and Urs Fischer have been supported by The Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia.
