Precision as a State of Mind: Sculptures by Mark Firth at Graves Gallery, City Centre 3 September — 15 January 2021 Entrance is free — Visit now

The first new exhibition in the Graves Gallery in Sheffield following its six-month programme of refurbishment and redisplay celebrates the work of the acclaimed sculptor Mark Firth.

Precision as a State of Mind includes 83 new and recent works, including ‘Ten Cubes for Sheffield’, a new series made exclusively for the exhibition. The works on display, meticulously crafted in aluminium, each showcase Firth’s continual preoccupation with geometry and his exploration of the meeting point between art and engineering.

Firth’s practice reflects a long family connection to Sheffield’s engineering history – his great, great grandfather was the steel magnate and philanthropist Mark Firth, whose generosity helped found the University of Sheffield.
