HIGH House Production Park is delighted to present its first outdoor sculpture exhibition showcasing the work of five international artists: Antony Gormley, Steven Gregory, Marcus Kleinfeld, Tim Morgan and Jilly Sutton. The exhibition runs from Saturday 21 January until Monday 19 March in daylight hours and is completely free.
Sculpture at High House Production Park features one sculpture by each of the five artists installed throughout the Production Park’s varied landscape.
A series of curator-led guided tours, artist talks and workshops will also be on offer throughout the duration of the exhibition to encourage the community to enjoy fully the sculptures on display and to experience the various activities that take place at the Production Park. The exhibition and events have been generously supported by the Arts Council England, the Royal Opera House and Thurrock Thames Gateway Development Corporation.
Sculpture at High House Production Park is the first major exhibition on the site which is also home to the Royal Opera House Bob and Tamar Manoukian Production Workshop and the new National Skills Academy for Creative and Cultural, opening later in 2012. High House Production Park hopes for the exhibition to advance the charitable aims of furthering education, fostering community development and cohesion and engagement with the arts, heritage and culture.
High House Production Park is also delighted to be able to support an apprentice programme that has seen four apprentices from White Light Ltd work on lighting the displays at the formal launch reception.
Will McKee, Trustee of the High House Production Park said: “High House Production Park is leading the way for the Creative and Cultural Sector in Thurrock and we are thrilled to be showcasing five top international sculptures on site.
“The art work will enhance the landscape of the Park and really add to the creative feel that spreads throughout this exciting project.”
Helen Lax, Regional Director, Arts Council England, East, said: “The exhibition of these high-quality sculptures demonstrates High House Production Park’s continued commitment to fostering great art and culture in the region. We are particularly pleased to see that this exhibition is providing opportunities for young people to have some exciting hands-on experience in the sector.”
