Feeling Her Way: Sonia Boyce
23 April – 27 November 2022
We are proud to have supported Sonia Boyce’s exhibition for the British Pavilion at this year’s 59th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia, commissioned by the British Council.
Feeling Her Way immerses visitors in the collaborative dynamism of five Black female musicians brought together by the artist to improvise, interact and play with their voices.
Louise Bourgeois: The Woven Child
9 February – 15 May 2022
This major retrospective exhibition focuses on the final chapter of Louise Bourgeois’s storied career.
In this period, the artist forged a body of work that re-articulated many of her lifelong concerns in newly provocative and profoundly enlivening ways.
The Woven Child includes Bourgeois’ exploration of identity, sexuality, family relationships, reparation, and memory.
The Henry Moore Foundation is aware of the challenges and complications that organisations have been facing in light of the Covid-19 pandemic. We understand the difficulties faced ensuring the continuity of public programmes and the ability to forward plan in a moment of such uncertainty.
Due to the current circumstances, we have received many notifications from grant recipients advising us that exhibitions and projects that the Henry Moore Foundation has supported, are now being delayed. The Foundation will endeavour to maintain its support for projects irrespective of such changes.
