Summary note
"Drawing together key works from the impressive oeuvre created by Kim Lim (1936-1997), this survey explores the dynamic and unique aspects of the artist's career and her legacy within modern British art history. Including the expert interpretations of leading art-world specialists, focus is given to a range of themes from the relationship between Lim's sculpture and printmaking, to the importance of materials and her travel photography in influencing her work. Including discussion of Lim's marginalisation in the histories of British sculpture since her death, this publication rightfully positions the artist and her remarkable body of work centre stage"--Publisher's description.
Published to accompany an exhibition held at The Hepworth Wakefield, 25 November 2023 - 2 June 2024.
