Hirshhorn Plaza

This exhibition was the first in North America to examine the influential role of recent British sculpture in international art. Six artists were represented. Richard Long, Barry Flanagan, and David Nash emerged in the 1970s as influential practitioners of the Conceptual and Earth art movements. Tony Cragg, Richard Deacon, and Bill Woodrow emerged in the late 1970s and early 1980s as British sculpture began to reemphasize the image.

Organized by the Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
