Launch of the Hepworth Research Network

The Hepworth Wakefield

We are delighted to announce the launch of the Hepworth Research Network, funded by the AHRC, which brings the department into partnership with The Hepworth Wakefield and Centre for Sculptural Thinking at the University of Huddersfield for the next two years. The aim of the network, led by Eleanor Clayton (THW), Dr Anneke Pettican (UoH) and Prof Michael White (UoY), is to bring artists, art historians, conservators and curators together to share their knowledge of the material practices of sculpture, using the unique resources of The Hepworth Wakefield as a focus to enhance the care, display and interpretation of the sculpture of Barbara Hepworth and her contemporaries.
