A Treasure Hunt Featuring Big Name Artists At The Foundling Museum
A poster asking for help to find a lost pigeon, an Arctic explorer made of socks and heads designed for a Henry Moore statue. What do these all have in common?
The answer is they are all artworks revolving around the theme of having found something. A perfect theme for an exhibition set in the Foundling Museum.
The works are on display in the basement gallery, but also littered throughout the permanent collection so visitors will have to go hunt them out. Some are easy to spot while others are much more subtle.
David Shrigley, Phyllia Barlow, Antony Gormley and Bob and Roberta Smith are just some of the big names on show. The list of participating artists is massive and the art includes both deeply personal items relating to family right through to Ceal Floyer's humorous rung-less ladder.
Artist Cornelia Parker has curated the exhibition. She did a fantastic job with the 2014 Royal Academy Summer Exhibition and here she's put together another great show.
Found is on at The Foundling Museum, 40 Brunswick Square, WC1N 1AZ until 4 September. Tickets are £10.25 for adults, concessions available.
