What: Be among the first to see this major new exhibition by one of the UK’s leading artists, Anish Kapoor.

Internationally renowned, Turner Prize-winning artist Anish Kapoor creates sensual and beguiling sculptures from pigment, stone, polished stainless steel and wax.

This brand new exhibition features two important early works by the artist from the Arts Council Collection, presented alongside around half a dozen of his more recent works, on loan from major UK collections and from the artist’s studio.

This must-see exhibition is the first major show of Kapoor’s work to be held outside London in over a decade and follows the artist’s record-breaking Royal Academy exhibition in 2009.

Manchester Art Gallery is the launch venue for the show, curated and organised by the Art Council Collection.

It will then tour nationally to Nottingham Castle Museum & Art Gallery (19 November 2011 – 11 March 2012); Longside Gallery, Yorkshire Sculpture Park (16 June – 4 November 2012).
