Curated by Marcello Dantas the exhibition will present major works from the last forty years of Kapoor’s practice, from early pigment sculptures to his deepest interest in ritual materials. The exhibition presents iconic and unique sculptural languages the artist has become famous for working in.

Through the mutability of their form materials such as wax, stone, pigment and steel take on qualities that transcend their materiality. From the monumental auto-generated wax sculpture Svayambhu (2007), to the form and formlessness of works that emerge from the architecture itself such as When I am Pregnant (1992), to the liminal space created by mirror works such as Non-Object (Door) (2008); Kapoor’s works are filled with oppositional dualities –interior/exterior, presence/absence, male/female. The confounding of these binary states creates objects and spaces both unknowable yet known, unfamiliar yet uncanny. Kapoor’s sculptures place the public in an uncertain terrain. In his words, "... to create a new art, you must create new space ...."

Kapoor has exhibited extensively internationally, recent solo exhibitions include CAFA Museum and Imperial Ancestral Temple, Beijing (2019); Serralves Museum, Porto, Portugal (2018); Parque de la Memoria, Buenos Aires (2017); Museo d’Arte Contemporanea (MACRO), Rome (2016); Museo Universitario Arte Contemporáneo (MUAC), Mexico City (2016) and Château de Versailles, France (2015). Large scale public projects include Cloud Gate (2004) in Millennium Park, Chicago, USA; Temenos (2010) in Middlesbrough, U.K; Orbit (2012), Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London and Ark Nova (2013) the world's first inflatable concert hall in Japan. He represented Britain at the 44th Venice Biennale in 1990 for which he was awarded the Premio Duemila for Best Young Artist. In 1991 he won the prestigious Turner Prize and in 2013 was awarded a knighthood, one of the highest distinctions in England for services to the arts.

Throughout the exhibition, a series of public programs will be developed, with the aim of generating an important exchange of ideas, talks, and parallel activities that address Anish Kapoor's work from different perspectives. The exhibition is accompanied by multiple free educational activities for children, youth and adults.
