Exhibition Design, Gallery Design, Graphic Design, Selected

This exhibition looked at the fascinating relationship between Henry Moore’s sculptures and drawings, and the armour that inspired it. A series of rooms present the works and armour on stage sets through the gallery.

Presented in collaboration with the Henry Moore Foundation, the exhibition uncovers the previously unknown role of specific helmets and armour from the Wallace Collection in influencing Moore’s ideas and creations. The exhibition looked at Moore’s helmet-related works, comprising over sixty sketches, drawings, maquettes and full-sized sculptures in plaster, lead and bronze, alongside the Renaissance armour that inspired them.
