Last chance to see: Ron Mueck at Wolverhampton Art Gallery

As part of ‘Artist Rooms’, a participation with Arts Council England and the Art Fund, the contemporary art of Ron Mueck has been made available to Wolverhampton Art Gallery (you can read a previous blog post about Artist Rooms here). This exhibition only runs until 2nd November so after my visit I urge everybody to have a look before it’s too late!

The collection of works by internationally renowned sculptor Ron Mueck are on loan from the Tate, together with some pieces from private collections which have rarely been seen in the UK. It is a great opportunity to see his impressive works in person, and only a stone’s throw away from Birmingham.

Previously in the props industry, Mueck now uses mixed media to create hyper realistic human figures with a dizzying play on scale. To accompany the exhibition there is a fascinating display of photographs from Mueck’s workshop where you are offered a glimpse into how these lifelike constructions come about. In all it makes for a fascinating show that I highly recommend seeing…

    Hi,
    If you missed the exhibition in Wolverhampton, you can follow it to Buenos Aires! Tomorrow starts the Ron Mueck exhibit in Buenos Aires, in Fundación PROA. Worth seeing (Is it worth the airplane ticket?)
