Traditionally, stone, metal, clay, and wood were carved, moulded, and cast to make sculpture. Material Matters explores how artists working today use, adapt or manipulate these traditional materials or processes to make contemporary sculptural work.

All of the artists consider the role of craft in sculpture and the exciting juxtapositions that materials can initiate. The artists work across different disciplines; from sculpture, to textiles, moving image and craft, with an exciting range of materials and processes.

Material Matters Artists: Rhian Cooke, Hannah Robson, Ian Jackson, Connor Shields, Bijan Amini-Alavijeh, Katrina Cowling, Clare Holdstock, Dominic Hopkinson, Becca Macdonald, Julia McKinlay, Laura Porter, James Thompson, Jane Walkley, Mary Watson, and Lee Mok Yee. 
Curated by Alice Chandler, Artist Films by Zoe East (Opal Video) and newly commissioned poem by Stephen Harvey in the upcoming Catalogue.

Material Matters has been made possible thanks to funding from Arts Council England.
