The first major survey in the UK of the work of the Danish artist Per Kirkeby (b. 1938). The exhibition explores the exceptional diversity of Kirkeby's career spanning four decades.

Focusing on key moments in the artist's oeuvre, it brings together his Pop-inspired paintings from the 1960s with early paintings on canvas from the late 1970s, an extensive group of blackboard works, sculptures and a selection of the monumental canvases for which Kirkeby is best known.

The show features 148 works including paintings on masonite and canvas, bronze sculptures and rarely-shown works on paper as well as a comprehensive selection of the artist's extensive writings.
