Yorkshire Sculpture Park (YSP) is the leading international centre for modern and contemporary sculpture which celebrates its 45th anniversary in 2022.
It is an independent charitable trust (number 1067908) and registered museum situated in the 500-acre, 18th-century Bretton Hall estate in West Yorkshire. Founded in 1977 by Sir Peter Murray CBE, YSP was the first sculpture park in the UK, and is the largest of its kind in Europe, providing the only place in Europe to see Barbara Hepworth’s The Family of Man in its entirety alongside a significant collection of sculpture, including bronzes by Henry Moore, and site-specific works by Andy Goldsworthy, David Nash and James Turrell.
YSP mounts a world-class, year-round temporary exhibitions programme including some of the world’s leading artists across six indoor galleries and outdoors. Recent highlights include exhibitions by Robert Indiana, Joana Vasconcelos, Akeela Bertram, Not Vital, KAWS, Bill Viola, Anthony Caro, Fiona Banner, Ai Weiwei, Kimsooja, Amar Kanwar, Yinka Shonibare MBE, Joan Miró and Jaume Plensa. More than 80 works on display across the estate include major sculptures by Phyllida Barlow, Ai Weiwei, Roger Hiorns, Sol LeWitt, Joan Miró, Dennis Oppenheim and Thomas J Price.
