Anthony Caro: The Inspiration of Architecture (solo show)
Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery, London
9 March – 10 September 2023
Anthony Caro (1924–2013) is the subject of Pitzhanger’s spring exhibition, which opened on what would have been the artist’s 99th birthday. The exhibition focuses on the resurgence and development of architectural themes within Caro’s sculpture, comprising 16 key works created between 1983–2013. The pieces explore contained space and its relation to the human figure; architectural features such as passages, doors and steps in the form of sculpture; the use of specific materials – notably Caro’s use of coloured Perspex, which echoes Sir John Soane’s use of stained glass at Pitzhanger Manor, as well as steel, wood, concrete, stoneware and brass; and the relationship between exterior and interior areas.
