Songs of Sculpture by @HMILeeds

The Henry Moore Institute is an award-winning exhibitions venue, research centre and sculpture archive on The Headrow in Leeds city centre (if you haven’t visited, look out for our stunning black marble façade next door to Leeds Art Gallery). We are open year round, free of charge and are here to showcase the best in international sculpture, both historical and contemporary, with a world-class programme of research and events.

We were delighted to be asked to make a playlist and selected the theme of SCULPTURE. However, we must credit our friends, followers and fans on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for their help in suggesting possible songs. Their knowledge, creativity and enthusiasm was truly amazing. In fact we had so many suggestions that we have enough material for several playlists. Therefore we make our début on Leeds Playlist with THREE playlists!

We’d love to know which one you prefer so please cast your vote on our Facebook page. More playlists to follow (we’re hooked!), but if you think you might have a playlist challenge for us, send us a tweet – we’ve had so much fun with this we’re ready for more!
