Yorkshire Sculpture Park
Yorkshire Sculpture Park (YSP) is an open-air gallery “without walls” in Yorkshire, England, showing works by British and international artists, e.g. Barbara Hepworth, Henry Moore and James Turrell. The park is situated in the grounds of Bretton Hall, a historical estate which was a family home between 18th and mid 20th century. Follies, landscape features and architectural structures from the 18th century can be seen around the park including the deer park and deer shelter, an ice house, and a camellia house. Artists take their inspiration from its architectural, historical or natural environment.
Since the 1990s the park has also made use of indoor exhibition spaces, initially a Bothy Gallery and a temporary tent-like structure called the Pavilion Gallery. After an extensive refurbishment and expansion, YSP has added an underground gallery space in the Bothy garden, and exhibition spaces at Longside, which is the hillside facing the original park. Its programme consists of contemporary and modern sculpture from Rodin and Bourdelle through to living artists.
Within the framework of the European Landart Network YSP starts the programme "Art, Landscape & Regional Identity" in November 2013.
