'Ana England: Kinship'
Feauring 25 of Ana England’s large-scale sculptures and installations, this exhibition explores the idea of kinship—a conceptual thread that has run through England’s work from the 1980s to the present. Three new works by England will be on display for the first time. England works with a range of materials, yet clay is her principal medium, valued for its sensitivity to touch and its connections to the earth. Thought-provoking and masterfully crafted, the pieces in Kinship demonstrate that the connections between us are greater than those separating us.
