About

Explore The Hepworth Wakefield during a small group private after-hours tour! The tour will include the two permanent Hepworth gallery spaces, the recently opened Shenece Oretha exhibition, which contains some key Hepworth sculptures, and other works on display from the collection with links to Hepworth. The Hepworth Wakefield is an award-winning art gallery in the heart of Yorkshire, set within Wakefield’s historic waterfront overlooking the River Calder. Designed by the acclaimed David Chipperfield Architects, the gallery opened in May 2011. Named after Barbara Hepworth, one of the most important artists of the 20th century who was born and brought up in Wakefield, the gallery presents major exhibitions of the best international modern and contemporary art and has dedicated galleries exploring Hepworth’s art and working process.
