To mark the The Hepworth Wakefield’s 10th anniversary, Barbara Hepworth: Art & Life is the most expansive exhibition of the Hepworth's work in the UK since the artist's death in 1975.

Tacita Dean has been commissioned to create a new work which will be presented within the exhibition. Significant Form explores themes and ideas that interested Hepworth and that continue to resonate with Dean's own work. A new commission by Veronica Ryan and artworks by Bridget Riley from the 1960s will also be presented in dialogue with Hepworth’s work from the same period.
