May 26, 2018 - Apr 28, 2019
Penone's poetic practice embodies a lifelong exploration of the complex and fundamental relationships between body, nature, memory, time and art.

KATRINA PALMER : THE COFFIN JUMP
Jun 16, 2018 - Jun 16, 2019
Founded in 1907, the FANY rescued wounded men directly from the battlefields, linking the front line with field hospitals.
 
Visitors to Yorkshire Sculpture Park will see an intervention in the landscape, comprising an inscribed fence above a trench. Occasionally activated by a horse and rider, Palmer’s work combines sculpture, soundtrack and performance and symbolises the new freedoms afforded to women in the war.

MISTER FINCH : THE WISH POST
Jun 23 - Sep 23, 2018 FINAL WEEK
More than 75 individual works showcase Mister Finch’s masterful combination of up-cycled and new materials, from discarded wire, steel and wood, to vintage tapestries, cross stitch samplers, tablecloths, antique silverware and rescued cloth.

SEAN SCULLY : INSIDE OUTSIDE
Sep 29, 2018 - Jan 6, 2019
Exploring concepts of landscape and abstraction with human experience, the exhibition unites sculpture with important recent paintings on aluminium and linen, together with works on paper. Drawing out ideas pertinent to the singularity of YSP and its landscape, this is a poetic, robust experience that embraces the Park’s topography and Scully’s exceptional vigour, as well as his belief that in life and art there is perpetual discovery.
 
The exhibition presents an artist at the height of his powers. Aged 72, it is evident that there is no curtailment of Scully’s energy, drive and vision. Keenly aware of the labour that dominated the lives of his mining family, Scully’s practice is one of great rigour and toil, his output prodigious. For YSP he will make new painting and sculpture – resolutely contemporary works that will integrate an inclination towards geometry with the romantic sincerity of landscape painting in the historical tradition.
