    From 1 April until 21 June 2015, Arts Council Collection presents Making It: Sculpture in Britain 1977–1986 featuring the work of over 40 artists including Tony Cragg, Richard Deacon, Antony Gormley, among many others.

    Drawn primarily from the holdings of the Arts Council Collection and augmented with major loans from important UK public and private collections, this substantial exhibition embraces a wide range of sculptural practices, highlighting shared concerns, as well as important differences, between and within established groups. 

    Making It is an Arts Council Collection Touring Exhibition, which launches at Longside Gallery, Yorkshire Sculpture Park before touring to Mead Art Gallery, Warwick Arts Centre in Autumn 2015. The Arts Council Collection is managed by Southbank Centre.
