Tony Cragg: Sculptures and Drawings
- Website: www.edinburghartfestival.com
Focusing mainly on work from the last ten years but including some earlier pieces too, this retrospective of the work of British sculptor Tony Cragg could serve to bolster the UK profile of the artist, whose German base has led to his work not receiving the attention lavished on contemporaries like Anish Kapoor and Antony Gormley.
This exhibition features work by Turner prize-winner Tony Cragg, including work made in the last ten years as well as earlier work, giving the show a retrospective character. See stunning contemporary sculptures filling the whole ground-floor of the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art.
