The real and imagined role of modern sculpture in the post-war middle-class British home is the focus of this exhibition. It is a re-staging of the Sculpture in the Home exhibitions that took place in the forties and fifties, which endeavoured to make sculpture part of everyday life.

Five exhibitions, supported by the Arts Council and the Council of Industrial Design, took place between 1945 and 1959, displaying contemporary sculptures in gallery installations suggestive of modern domestic interiors. This re-staging includes sculpture by Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth, John Skeaping, Reg Butler, Frank Dobson, Gertrude Hermes, Rosemary Young, Trevor Tennant, Uli Nimptsch and Dora Gordine, brought to life by Lucienne Day and Audrey Levy textiles, and furniture by Robin Day, Ernest Race and Gordon Russell.
