Phillip King
Monument for Hiroshima, 1987-88

Open ProgramPhillip King and Anthony Caro

Along with King’s Monument for Hiroshima (1987-88), which was commissioned by the museum, and Caro’s Water Street Starter (1980), this exhibition places special emphasis on King’s work of the 1980s. As King’s Head (1982-83), an outdoor sculpture on permanent exhibition at the museum, is related to the theme of Like a Face, a special display in the current collection exhibition, it promises to provide viewers with further insight into the artist’s style during this period.
