An exhibition by one of the world’s most distinguished contemporary sculptors, Sir Tony Cragg will go on show at The Gallery at Windsor, Vero Beach, Florida, from February 25 to May 19, 2023.
The exhibition, curated by art historian Jon Wood, will include bronze, steel and glass sculptures, and works on paper in the gallery as well as a large-scale 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 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.

He held professorships in the Akademie der Künste in Berlin and Kunstakademie Düsseldorf, where he was director from 2009 to 2013.
The exhibition will be 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.
The Hon. Hilary M. Weston, co-founder of Windsor and the Creative Director for The Gallery at Windsor said: “We look forward to welcoming Tony Cragg to The Gallery at Windsor. 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.”
Jon Wood said: “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.”
