To coincide with Pallant House Gallery's retrospective exhibition, the Cass Sculpture Foundation is pleased to announce Eduardo Paolozzi: Sculpting History. This exhibition will feature some of the artist's most important mid and large-scale works in materials such as bronze, plaster, aluminium and steel. Spanning across a period of more than half a century, these works explore the changing modernist, abstract and pop-art styles and concerns of Paolozzi's work.
The Foundation's grounds are a permanent home to Paolozzi's monumental piece 'London-Paris', which was funded as a joint commission between the Royal Academy, Flowers East Gallery and the Foundation in 2000. Wilfred Cass had long been a collector of Paolozzi's graphic works prior to starting the Foundation in 1992. On meeting with Cass in person, Paolozzi initially had some strong views on the nature of sculpture parks as rather static places, however, the commission led to a flourishing friendship between the two, and prompted Paolozzi to change his opinions on the nature of sculpture parks altogether. The work remains one of the Foundation's most coveted sculptures to date and will form the centre-piece for the exhibition alongside 12 other large-scale loans.
