Making It, which runs from October 1-November 13 at the gallery’s Cork Street space, is a group show focusing on the generation of women sculptors who came to prominence in the late 1960s and early 1970s.

Taking an unexpected approach to their chosen media – fusing gold leaf with linen for example, folding metal or hand-knotting rope – these artists challenged Modernist conventions and expanded the media and methods for Abstract sculpture.

Pictured above is Beverly Pepper’s (1922-2020) stainless steel work Calm Sea (1965), which has an asking price of £45,000.

Other artists in the exhibition include Olga de Amaral, Lynda Benglis, Françoise Grossen, and Mildred Thompson.
