The Making of Cave
A new public artwork for Milton Keynes
5 - 29 April 2012
This April, MK Gallery’s Project Space presents The making of Cave, a new public art work for Milton Keynes. The exhibition comprises a selection of background material relating to the production of Ivan & Heather Morison’s Cave (2011), a major new commission and permanent public artwork that was unveiled in Campbell Park last autumn.
Offering insight into the planning and design of this large concrete sculpture, the exhibition comprises a selection of drawings, photographs and objects, including the artists’ original model, the wooden prototype from which Cave’s iron bench was cast, a selection of installation images, and a new film made in collaboration with the artists showing the sculpture in Campbell Park.
During the run of the exhibition, it will be augmented by a election of artwork made in response to Cave by children and families who attend MK Gallery’s free, regular, Start the Art and Mini Maker creative workshops.
Throughout April MK Gallery’s children and family events are
inspired by Cave.
