The Yorkshire Sculpture Park in the United Kingdom has reopened to continue the March 2020 exhibition closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic of Portuguese artist Joana Vasconcelos. The works are found both indoors at the Underground Gallery and across Yorkshire Sculpture Park’s 500-acre grounds.

The exhibition celebrates the creative lives of women, a recurring theme throughout Vasconcelos’ work. Stand-outs include Valkyrie Marina Rinaldi, a 12-meter-long sculpture with crochet tentacle limbs, and Marilyn, with oversized silver stilettos made from stainless saucepans as a comment on social conventions and expectations of women.

The reopened exhibition titled Beyond will run through January 3, 2021. See some of the pieces below the article.
