The Collection of Dr Brian Harding - A Passion for Form

Tue-Fri: 11-6pm; Sat: 11-6pm

A Passion for Form presents a selection of ceramic and fabric artworks from the collection of Dr Brian Harding and is the first public exhibition of the collection. Featuring pieces from esteemed artists and craftspeople Dame Magdalene Odundo OBE, Jennifer Lee OBE, Peter Collingwood OBE and Hans Coper, each of whom have brought craft to a contemporary art audience through their innovative and idiosyncratic techniques and mastery over their chosen materials.

In place of neutral white walls, wall hangings - artworks in their own right - create dynamic backdrops for sculptural ceramics, with curated vignettes appearing at every angle. The softness of these hangings is contrasted in their linear geometry. Like the furniture which occupies each room, modernity, and beauty are their defining features.

A Passion for Form seeks to stay true to the motivations behind the forms of display within Harding’s home while placing the works in a new environment where they are accessible to a broader audience.
