It explores that wonderfully contradictory moment in the late 60s/early 70s when artists such as Richard Long, Keith Arnatt, Carl Plackman and Stuart Brisley started challenging the Caro/ St Martin’s orthodoxy that had itself not long taken on Moore himself. What’s particularly good about it is that all parties in the debate are properly represented – some 50 artists in all – and, what’s more, none of them came to overly dominate, hence the continuing strength and diversity of British sculpture 40 years or more on.
