Recall Sculpture | Middelheim

From 28 October to 18 March 2018, the Middelheim Museum hosts the exhibition RECALL SCULPTURE, consisting of a group of small sculptures from the 1950s and 1970s from the collection of the Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp.

Forerunner of contemporary art

The 41 small sculptures on display in RECALL SCULPTURE prefigure contemporary art and bear witness to the renewed creative and artistic freedom discovered by post-war artists. The works of Pietro Consagra (1920-2005), Arnoldo Pomodoro (born 1926), Francesco Somaini (1926-2005), Elisabeth Schaar (1908-1975), Bernhard Heiliger (1915-1995), Marino Marini (1901-1980) and others are displayed in the perfect setting of the Middelheim’s grounds.

Enormous diversity

The works are characterised by enormous diversity: the artists sought to create timeless work, detached from any frame of reference, or reacted to society by expressing the horror of military conflict through their art. The technique and material used are determined by the subject matter and the artist’s frame of mind.
