Alexandre da Cunha and Phillip King will be presenting a two person exhibition at Royal Society of Sculptors in London. The Society was created more than 100 years ago to champion contemporary sculpture and is located in Dora House in South Kensington, London.

Prior to the opening of the exhibition, Alexandre da Cunha and Phillip King will share a week of practical exchange at the Royal Society of Sculptors’ studio space. Both artists will bring objects, materials and equipment, and between them explore the process of making. For the opening of the exhibition the studio space will be left as it is, with the remnants of the exchange on view.

In addition, a substantial group of smaller table-based works and maquettes by both artists will be on display illustrating the artists’ diverse approach to object making. On the Sculpture Terrace, da Cunha will exhibit a new monumental outdoor work.
