Carol Bove / Carlo Scarpa brings together sculptures by American artist Carol Bove (b.1971) spanning 2003 to 2014 alongside rarely seen exhibition furniture, sculptures and architectural prototypes by Venetian architect and exhibition designer Carlo Scarpa (1906-78). Centred on themes of display, the case study and experimentation, the exhibition explores the artist's and architect's distinct vocabularies, treatment of materials and approaches to providing environments for artworks.

Carol Bove will be in conversation with Lisa Le Feuvre (Head of Sculpture Studies, Henry Moore Institute) and Pavel S. Pyś (Exhibitions and Displays Curator, Henry Moore Institute). Focusing on the development of the new body of work made for Carol Bove / Carlo Scarpa, this gallery discussion is the first opportunity to see this ground-breaking exhibition and a rare opportunity to listen to the artist talk about her work.

This event will be followed by a special exhibition preview, 6-8pm, with refreshments provided.
