Alice Irwin’s New Sculpture Commission at The Piece Hall
A new major sculpture commission from emerging artist Alice Irwin will turn the iconic grand piazza in Halifax’s Piece Hall into a playground for the artists cast of distinctive characters from 28 February – 1 June 2020. People Play is the first outdoor installation by Irwin, who graduated in Printmaking from the Royal College of Art in 2018. Using this background, Irwin pushes the boundaries of what traditional print processes can be, expanding into a world of the three dimensional.
As well as the 9 sculptures being displayed in The Piece Hall, there will also be 1 sculpture at Artworks and 1 at Dean Clough, creating a playful trail through town. There will therefore be some chalk motifs throughout Woolshops, leading you through the art trail. Please come down, enjoy the art and don’t forget to tag us in your Instagram pictures @woolshops.
