Ron Meuck sculptures exhibition: Thursday 4 February 2010 - Sunday 11 April 2010 Manchester Art Gallery

Ron Meuck sculptures exhibition: Thursday 4 February 2010 - Sunday 11 April 2010
Manchester Art Gallery


Ron Mueck's hyper-real sculptures of the human figure are tender portrayals of people in their most intimate, isolated and vulnerable moments. This exhibition features three of his remarkable, out of scale sculptures: Wild Man, 2005; Spooning Couple, 2005; and Mask III, 2005.

Australian-born, London-based artist Ron Mueck began his career as a model maker and puppeteer for children’s television – working with creator ofThe Muppets Jim Henson on shows such as Sesame Street, and on films including Labyrinth.

Mueck first made his name as an acclaimed artist when his work was included in the Royal Academy’s 1997 Sensation exhibition alongside works by Young British Artists such as Damien Hirst, Tracey Emin and Jake & Dinos Chapman. Since then, Mueck’s works have been exhibited across the world, captivating the public wherever they have been shown.

Following on from the enormous success of 2009, Manchester Art Gallery is one of 21 museums and galleries across the UK showing 25 ARTIST ROOMS displays drawn from the collection created by the dealer and collector, Anthony d’Offay, and acquired by the nation in February 2008.

ARTIST ROOMS on Tour with The Art Fund has been devised to enable this collection held by Tate and the National Galleries of Scotland, to reach and inspire new audiences across the country, particularly young people.


For further information on the acquisition of ARTIST ROOMS, details of the 2010 tour and on the funding of the tour please go to The Art Fund's website. To see the full ARTIST ROOMS collection please visit Tate and the National Galleries Scotland websites.

Visitors to the ARTIST ROOMS Ron Mueck exhibition at Manchester Art Gallery can also enjoy another superb exhibition of contemporary artworks showing at the gallery. Facing East: Recent Works from China, India and Japan from the Frank Cohen Collection features ten artworks from one of the UK’s most important private collections of contemporary art.
