An Arts Council Collection exhibition selected by Richard Deacon.

Garth Evans’ practice has largely been defined by the use of geometric, asymmetrical forms and a commitment to simple, everyday materials. One of the generation between Anthony Caro and New British Sculpture, Evans is noted for a body of work that offers a bridge between 1960s modernism and the lyrical experimentation with a broader range of materials that followed in the late 1970s.

More Information

This exhibition, which presents the Arts Council Collection’s significant holdings alongside key loans from the artist and UK collections, has been selected by Evans’ friend and former student, Richard Deacon and promises a fresh view of a fascinating and diverse practice during an important period of inquiry and development.

Evans studied at the Slade School of Art (1957-60) and during the 1960s he taught in the Sculpture Department at St Martin’s School of Art where Richard Deacon studied under his direction. Having made a radical break with the UK scene in 1979, when he moved to the US, his work has become relatively unknown in the UK.

I was in a group studio in West London with Garth when I left Art School in 1968, it would be great to meet him again, I must try and get an invitation to the opening!!
