Henry Moore Institute

Would you like to learn from people about how living with a prosthetic can help, and hinder, day-to-day life?

The Henry Moore Institute is located right in the heart of Leeds, on The Headrow. Founded by Henry Moore himself, we are a part of The Henry Moore Foundation and a centre for the study of sculpture. Open to everyone, our ambition is to encourage the widest possible public to engage with sculpture. We host exhibitions, a Research Library and a lively programme of talks and discussions.

We are currently researching an exhibition for summer 2016 that looks at the conversations between sculpture and prosthetics. Showing artworks and objects from medical museum collections, this exhibition will span the First World War to the present day starting with facial prosthetics made by sculptors during the 14-18 conflict. We are really interested in hearing from people who use prosthetics. Sculpture is all about the human form, and we would like to learn from you about how living with a prosthetic can help, and hinder, day-to-day life.

If you would like to share your experiences you can email ann.crossland@val.org.uk who will forward them to the Henry Moore Institute.
