This was a co-curated project (with Dr Penelope Curtis) for the Royal Academy looking at British Sculpture in the 20th Century

This curatorial research and exhibition was commissioned by The Royal Academy. It was an extended critical reflection on what became an export franchise through the last century. By posing questions such as ‘what is British?’ and ‘what is Sculpture?’ it told a story that explored what each of those terms brings to the other.
