Yorkshire Sculpture Park
05.09.15 – 03.01.16
Garden Gallery and open air
Bob and Roberta Smith’s installation Art for All has been developed in response to the holdings of the National Arts Education Archive (NAEA) at Yorkshire Sculpture Park, which documents over 100 years of art education. Celebrating the 30th anniversary of the archive, Art For All extends the artist’s provocative advocacy for the role of art in lives and education and invites ideas toward an art curriculum for the digital 21st century.
Sharing key material and ideas from the NAEA, including the original artwork for A. E. Halliwell’s iconic travel posters, each bay in the gallery presents a pivotal era in art education from 1914 to the present day, including The Child Art Movement and Basic Design.
The exhibition, and major open-air work Art Makes Children Powerful (2013), demonstrates the artist’s continued commitment to the right of everyone, especially children, to access art, as well as the continued relevance of the NAEA.
