Peter King sculptures on loan to ‘Postwar Modern’

Barbican Art Gallery
3 March – 26 June 2022

England & Co have loaned two sculptures from the late 1950s by Peter King to Postwar Modern: New Art in Britain 1945-1965 at the Barbican Art Art Gallery, London. The exhibition, curated by Jane Alison, explores the “art produced in Britain in the wake of a cataclysmic war. Certainty was gone, and the aftershocks continued, but there was also hope for a better tomorrow. These conditions gave rise to an incredible richness of imagery, forms and materials in the years that followed.”
