The TMH Edit: five things to do this April

Henry Moore: The Sixties at Henry Moore Studios & Gardens, Hertfordshire

In Hertfordshire, the wonderful Henry Moore Studios & Gardens is hosting a new exhibition that hones in on the artist’s career throughout, as its title suggests, the 1960s. This important decade of work saw Moore experiment with materials such as polystyrene and fibreglass, resulting in abstract sculptures on a behemoth scale. Subsequently, Moore, who was once thought of as avant-garde, reached celebrity status, which raised the eyebrows of other artists. Henry Moore: The Sixties dives into this controversy and displays 30 sizable sculptures, alongside other works including more than 20 bold and colourful drawings and graphics. If you visit on one of spring’s sunnier days, be sure to stroll around the glorious gardens. From 1 April to 30 October 2022.
