Phyllida Barlow’s vibrant, large-scale installations transform the environments they inhabit. Our new, David Chipperfield-designed galleries are next.

From the Venice Biennale and Tate Britain to Zurich’s Kunsthalle, Phyllida Barlow’s colourful creations have reconfigured spaces around the world. Seemingly precarious and often massive in scale, she uses raw and recycled materials like cardboard, cement and plaster, to create looming forests of structures that respond directly to the spaces they inhabit.

Barlow came to prominence in the art world after a long and influential career as a fine art teacher, first at Chelsea in the 1960s and then at the Slade School of Art, where she was professor of fine art and director of undergraduate studies until 2009.

The new Gabrielle Jungels-Winkler Galleries have inspired Barlow to take a fresh approach to her upcoming installation, challenging our perception of the space in a completely original way.

Supported by Art Fund.
