Kettle's Yard at The Hepworth Wakefield
20 May 2016 – 4 September 2016
Kettle’s Yard at The Hepworth Wakefield is a unique opportunity to see key works from this exceptional collection alongside the Wakefield art collection while the Cambridge gallery is closed for renovation. Kettle’s Yard was a series of cottages converted into a Modernist home by H. S. Jim Ede, a notable collector of modern British art. Ede conceived his home as 'a living place where works of art could be enjoyed’.
The exhibition will present works by some of the most significant and avant-garde artists of the 20th century including Constantin Brancusi, Georges Braque, Barbara Hepworth, Joan Miro and Ben Nicholson together with the found objects and furniture Ede so carefully positioned in his home.
