An initiative is underway to recover artists’ work from storage and give it a new lease of life. The Sculpture Placement Group is giving educational and health organisations, art institutions, charities, housing associations and others the chance to show high quality works, many of which were commissioned for exhibitions at leading galleries, with little provision for what happens to pieces after an exhibition is over. One artist putting work up for adoption is Rachel Lowther, who said: “My studio is full of sculpture now and it can be a problem finding space to create anything new. It is better to have art out in the world than in boxes.” You can see a selection of works in search of a new home at the group’s Sculpture Showroom exhibition.
