Go and visit Antony Gormley’s ‘Field for the British Isles’
Field for the British Isles by Antony Gormley, creator of the Angel of the North, is on display at Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art (NGCA) at the National Glass Centre from July until September this year. Suzie, our art, design and performing arts Academic Liaison Librarian, has been to see it and strongly recommends you take the opportunity of booking a slot to visit.
The monumental installation comprises 40,000 small clay figures. The artwork is on loan from the prestigious Arts Council Collection, an important national loan collection of modern and contemporary British Art. Sunderland Culture is part of the Collection’s National Partners Programme which supports regional galleries and museums to present and curate exhibitions drawn from the Collection.
If you’re want to know more about Antony Gormley and his work, or to read up about him before visiting this exciting exhibition, explore our library collections about him.
We also have a copy of the book accompanying the exhibition – Field for the British Isles by Hugh Brody – so pop in and borrow it to learn more about the exhibition.
