More Information

The Flashback exhibition is the first survey of Kapoor’s work to be held in the UK outside of London. The exhibition at Longside features earlier work form the Arts Council Collection, with more recent sculpture on loan from the artist and public collections. The starting point for this exhibition is the Arts Council Collection’s White Sand, Red Millet, Many Flowers – a very early pigment work which Kapoor has returned to in his thinking over many years. Infectious experimentation with a vast range of materials and forms has continued ever since, as has Kapoor’s investigation into universal themes concerning belief, passion and experience. The exhibition reveals many of the outcomes of Kapoor’s unique endeavour, including his exploration of voids, mirrored surfaces and vortices.

Flashback is a major series of touring exhibitions from the Arts Council Collection. A new illustrated publication featuring an interview with Anish Kapoor accompanies the exhibition, shop in store or online. For further information visit artscouncilcollection.org.uk or join us for free lunch time talks.

Nottingham Castle Museum & Art Gallery, Nottingham
19 November 2011 – 11 March 2012

Sculpture Court, Edinburgh College of Art, Edinburgh Festival
5 August – 9 October 2011
