EXHIBITION | Edward Allington: In pursuit of sculpture

  • UCL Art Museum Gower St, Kings Cross London WC1E 6BT UK (map)

Edward Allington: In pursuit of sculpture presents a selection of the acclaimed sculptor’s smaller works, cohabiting with the university's historical collections in a traditional Print Room setting. 

Fascinated by the classical world and its hold on contemporary imagination, Allington contemplated timely questions about authenticity, origins and truth. Sculptures, photographs, drawings, antique ledgers, motorbike parts and toy dinosaurs come together within the neoclassical architecture of UCL to capture the unique contribution of this most erudite of sculptors, who had a great sense of humour and inspired generations of artists at the UCL Slade School of Fine Art and beyond.
