In their most diverse exhibition to date, The Henry Moore Foundation's 'Body & Void' exhibition draws connections between Moore's investigation of internal space and its relationship with the human body, and reveals how his ideas have been taken in new directions by subsequent generations of artists.

Featuring some of the most recognisable names in contemporary art, including Damien Hirst, Rachel Whiteread, Antony Gormley 'Body & Void' presents current interpretations of some of Moore's central themes: Mother and Child, Internal and External forms and Figure in a Landscape.

New, site specific works by Richard Deacon and Richard Long have been commissioned as part of the exhibition.

'Body & Void' occupies the Sheep Field Barn gallery and Moore's original carving studio as well as setting work against the backdrop of the sculpture gardens and sheep fields.

The exhibition features works by: Joseph Beuys, Keith Coventry, Tony Cragg, Richard Deacon, Antony Gormley, Roger Hiorns, Damien Hirst, Des Hughes
Anish Kapoor, Richard Long, Sarah Lucas, Paul McDevitt, Bruce McLean, Bruce Nauman, Paul Noble, Thomas Schütte, Simon Starling and Rachel Whiteread.
