About the Exhibition
An exhibition by one of the world’s most distinguished contemporary sculptors, Sir Tony Cragg is on show at The Gallery at Windsor, Vero Beach, Florida, from February 25 to May 19, 2023.
The exhibition, curated by art historian Dr. Jon Wood, includes bronze, steel and glass sculptures, and works on paper in the gallery as well as a large-scale fiberglass sculpture sited in the community’s gardens – on 472 acres of a lush barrier island located between the Indian River and the Atlantic Ocean.
“Tony Cragg has not only changed the way we see sculpture, but also the way we see and think about the material world more generally,” said Jon Wood.
The exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue including a foreword by The Hon. Hilary M. Weston, an essay by Jon Wood and an interview with the artist by Hans Ulrich Obrist.
“We look forward to welcoming Tony Cragg to The Gallery at Windsor,” said Hilary Weston. “This exhibition, curated specifically for our gallery, will present a collection of works that showcase Tony’s extraordinary mastery over such a diverse range of materials.”
About the Artist
Tony Cragg explores the complex relationships between the natural and man-made world to create an innovative, distinctive sculptural language. A self-described “radical materialist,” the artist is interested in the internal structures of material that result in their external appearance. Originally informed by British land art and performance art, his work is inspired by the macro and microstructures found in nature, as well as an engagement with industrial materials and processes.
Cragg represented Britain at the 43rd Venice Biennale in 1988, and the same year was awarded the Turner Prize at Tate in London. He won the prestigious Praemium Imperiale Award, Tokyo in 2007 and the Lifetime Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture Award in 2017.
The artist has exhibited extensively in museums worldwide: Tate Gallery, London (1988), Stedelijk Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven and Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen, Düsseldorf (1989), Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh and Musée du Louvre, Paris (2011), Lehmbruck Museum, Duisburg (2013), Von der Heydt-Museum, Wuppertal and Hermitage Museum, St Petersburg (2016) and Boboli Gardens, Florence (2019), and Houghton Hall, Norfolk (2021). He held professorships in the Akademie der Künste in Berlin and Kunstakademie Düsseldorf, where he was director from 2009 to 2013.
