Natalie Rudd, Senior Curator, Arts Council Collection, talks about the curation of the Breaking the Mould exhibition and some of the issues it raises as the first major survey of post-war British sculpture by women.

Many of the represented artists have challenged ingrained notions of sculpture as a ‘male occupation’ by embracing new materials, subjects and approaches. Others have avoided institutional bias by producing work for alternative spaces or the public domain.
