Join University of Plymouth Art History Graduate, Clara Jackson as she discusses Rachel Whiteread's Untitled (6 Spaces). Clara will explore Whiteread’s practice of turning negative space into positive sculptural form and making the invisible, visible.

Breaking the Mould is the first major survey and celebration of post-war British sculpture by women. In this Bitesize, Clara will examine Whiteread’s work, her role as one of the world’s leading sculptors and, most importantly, her position - and that of the other artists on display in the exhibition - in the context of the male-dominated narratives of sculpture.

Breaking the Mould: Sculpture by Women since 1945

26 March – 5 June 2022
Breaking the Mould is the first major survey of post-war British sculpture by women. Presented across St. Luke’s, The Box, and The Levinsky Gallery, University of Plymouth, the exhibition surveys 75 years and explores the work of over 40 sculptors. It provides a radical recalibration, addressing the many accounts of British sculpture that have marginalised women or airbrushed their work from art history altogether.
