In February 2019, the Royal Academy presents a solo Phyllida Barlow exhibition in the recently developed Gabrielle Jungels-Winkler Galleries. Working in direct response to the space, Barlow has evolved her approach and aesthetic in order to create a challenging new series of large-scale installations, including the eponymous Cul-de-Sac. On display alongside this interlacing structure will be a collection of Barlow's renowned large-scale sculptures, made from pre-used or recycled materials, including polyester, cardboard, cement and plaster.
Before becoming an international art world superstar, Barlow worked as an art teacher, first at Chelsea School of Arts in the 1960s and then at the Slade School of Art as director of undergraduate studies until 2009. She represented Britain at the Venice Biennale in 2017, has exhibited at Zurich's Kunsthalle, and is now represented by international powerhouse gallery Hauser & Wirth. In demand, and always up for a challenge, Barlow tests the boundaries of sculptural perception, creating some of the world's most ground-breaking sculpture in the process.
