A new exhibition at Leeds’s Henry Moore Institute is bridging the gap between art and architecture - as well as between the continents.

The new showcase, running until July, brings together sculptures by American artist Carol Bove alongside rarely seen exhibition furniture, sculptures and architectural prototypes by Venetian architect and exhibition designer Carlo Scarpa. Organisers say that “although separated by generations and continents, Bove and Scarpa have a shared aesthetic sensibility”.

Also running at the venue on The Headrow is a first showcase in Britain of nine modern Japanese sculptures.
