Astounding in their realism and emotional power, Ron Mueck's works have made him one of the most renowned sculptors of our time. See them exclusively at Christchurch Art Gallery from 2 October.
This October, the Gallery is proud to present a major exhibition of work by internationally renowned sculptor Ron Mueck. Ranging from the startlingly huge Wild man to the miniscule Two women, this comprehensive exhibition of work by the Australian-born, London-based artist is the largest to have been presented in the southern hemisphere – and an opportunity not to be missed.
The show includes four striking new works alongside many of the artist's iconic sculptures, including the monumental and moving Pregnant woman, and Christchurch is the only place you can see it.
A National Gallery of Victoria touring exhibition
