Henry Moore Studios and Gardens postpones new exhibition in response to coronavirus crisis
The Henry Moore Studios and Gardens has postponed the launch of its latest exhibition because of the coronavirus.
'This Living Hand: Edmund de Waal presents Henry Moore', a showcase of the acclaimed contemporary artist, master potter and author's curation of works by the world-renowned sculptor, was due to open to the public on April 3.
A spokeswoman for the Perry Green attraction said: "Due to the current situation with Covid-19 and the latest Government advice, we have taken the decision to postpone the opening.
"We hope to be able to open the exhibition and Henry Moore Studios and Gardens later in the year, and will announce a new date as soon as it is safe to do so.
"We are extremely disappointed to delay the opening of this exciting exhibition, but the safety of our audiences, company and staff is of utmost importance."
Edmund de Waal, 55, who lives and works in London, is known for his large-scale installations of porcelain vessels, often created in response to collections and archives or the history of a particular place. In 2011 he was awarded an OBE for service to the arts.
His book, The Hare with Amber Eyes, was awarded the Costa Book Award for Biography, Royal Society of Literature Ondaatje Prize in 2011 and Windham-Campbell Literature Prize for Non-Fiction in 2015. His second book, The White Road, tracing his journey to discover the history of porcelain, was released in 2015.
