A new partnership between the Henry Moore Institute, the University of Leeds and Corridor8, including a microsite and a series of free online events running until February 2022.

Sculpture and poetry are two of the oldest known art forms. The connections between them are many and layered yet often seem to hide in plain sight, buried by division and specialism. This six-month research season celebrates practitioners, writers and scholars who explore these connections, bringing together two academic conferences and four public events featuring online in-conversations between renowned poets, writers and artists working in sculpture.

A free-to-access microsite developed with Corridor8 and Dust Collective will form a digital archive for the season, hosting writing and scholarship alongside event recordings and new responses to the programme. In line with Corridor8’s commitment to supporting new art writing in the North of England, four new commissions from Northern-based writers and artists will respond to the event programme.

For full details, visit the microsite at sculpture-poetry.net and poetry-sculpture.net.
