Modern British Sculpture opens at the Royal Academy in just over a week, and today the RA and BBC Four announced a new collaboration - 'Sculpture on Screen' - that will give sculpture fans the chance to enjoy a feast of arts broadcasting during the run of the exhibition.
Every Friday evening in the RA's John Madejski Fine Rooms there will be special screenings of sculpture documentaries, featuring brand new arts programming from BBC Four alongside treasures from the BBC Archive. Sculpture on Screen will include a sneak preview of episodes one and two of Romancing The Stone – The Golden Ages Of British Sculpture, a three-part series coming to BBC Four next month.
More details of the Sculpture on Screen programme can be found here.
