An Artist’s Influence: Re-thinking Paolozzi’s Archive with Emma Hart and Hardeep Pandhal
9 September 2023, 10:00 am - 29 October 2023, 4:00 pm
Since summer 2022, Paolozzi’s effervescent sculpture Rio has been situated in the Garden at Hospitalfield. A prolific artist in Scotland and the UK, we have been keen to explore his influence on contemporary artists today – whether positive, negative or otherwise – and how we might respond with artists to the scope and dispersal of his work.
With the guidance of curator Daniel F Herrmann, we have asked artists Emma Hart (London) and Hardeep Pandhal (Glasgow) to delve into Paolozzi’s archive and consider how they see Paolozzi’s work in relation to their own practice and development as artists. Emma and Hardeep’s interpretations will be displayed in the Picture Gallery at Hospitalfield.
With thanks to the Paolozzi Foundation.
Exhibition opening Saturday 9 September, 4-6pm
