Yorkshire Sculpture Park 2018 Guide

Sara Jaspan, Exhibitions Editor

Yorkshire Sculpture Park’s 2018 programme of international contemporary art has left us itching to get out of the city and back to one of our all-time-favourite places. Experience one of Chiharu Shiota’s mind-blowing web installations, hanging like a ‘painting in mid-air’ within the Bretton Estate’s serene 18th-century chapel. Or the deeply poetic work of the eminent Italian sculptor Giuseppe Penone, whose monumental firs and marble canvases tap into a more ‘geological’ sense of time. Be inspired by the radical politics at the heart of Revolt and Revolutions, and the vital environmental projects carried out by the grassroots arts charity Common Ground. Or step inside an immersive game environment to gain new insights into the rapidly developing world of today. As the UK’s leading open-air gallery (with a brand-new new visitor centre opening later this year), there seems no better place to spend your spring, summer, autumn and winter.
