A significant new exhibition featuring the work of sculptor Bruce McLean has opened at the Leeds Art Gallery. The show draws on work made by Bruce McLean from the last 50 years but through the prism of new and recent work. It provides a unique opportunity to see works that have not been exhibited together before. Working across a variety of mediums including painting, film and video projection, photography and performance, Bruce McLean is one of the most important artists of his generation.
‘Bruce McLean: Another condition of Sculpture’ features works that have never been exhibited together before with emphasis on his new body of paintings in which McLean carries forward his frank and open dialogue with sculptures and sculptors of the past is also being shown. Accompanying the exhibition is the first public showing of a new live performance ‘The Changing Room’, by McLean, which will be held in the Tiled Hall at the Art Gallery on May 8 2014. Councillor Lucinda Yeadon, Leeds City Council’s executive member for leisure & skills said: “I am really looking forward to the opening of this new exhibition at Leeds Art Gallery, which will provide an interesting and insightful look into the diverse work of Bruce McLean.” Bruce McLean (born 1944, Glasgow) lives and works in London. He is represented by Bernard Jacobson Gallery, London and Tanya Leighton Gallery, Berlin.
