Anthony Caro (1924–2013), widely regarded as one of the 20th century’s most influential sculptors, is the subject of Pitzhanger’s spring exhibition, opening on what would have been his 99th birthday. Caro heralded a revolution in sculpture in the 1960s, redefining what sculpture was and what it could be. His abstract constructions in painted steel overturned conventional ideas about materials, methods, surface, scale and space. Architecture was an important source of his inspiration, which he described as “perhaps the purest abstract visual form.”
Caro in Yorkshire is a major Yorkshire Sculpture Triangle project that celebrates and commemorates the extraordinary career of SIr Anthony Caro (1924–2013). Distinct yet complementary exhibitions at The Hepworth Wakefield and Yorkshire Sculpture Park consider respectively Caro's concerns with the horizontal plane and painting, given context through an academic programme at the prestigious Henry Moore Institute, Leeds.

Mitchell-Innes & Nash is pleased to announce an installation of sculptures by Sir Anthony Caro on The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden opening April 26. This selection of works spans the artist’s career to date and will highlight his principle contributions to sculpture: engagement with form in space, dialogue between sculpture and architecture, and the creation of abstract analogies for the human figure and landscape. The exhibition will be on view in the Museum’s dramatic, nearly 8,000-square-foot open-air space offering unparalleled views of Central Park and the New York City skyline. Anthony Caro on the Roof will be the 14th consecutive single-artist installation on the Cantor Roof Garden.
