To celebrate the exhibition ‘Henry Moore. Tapestries’, Hauser & Wirth has invited Mary Moore – the only child of the British artist and textile enthusiast Edith Cheung to discuss the creation of the tapestries.

Join us live on Tuesday 26 Oct 2021, 6.30pm HKT / 11.30am BST

About the Exhibition
Hauser & Wirth presents rarely seen tapestries by Henry Moore. A series of five large-scale tapestries will be shown, courtesy of the Henry Moore Family Collection, for the first time in Asia. Renowned for his sculptures and drawings, Henry Moore was one of the few modern artists to extend his work into the realm of tapestry. The brilliance of the drawings is confirmed in their transition into large tapestries, seven or eight times the size of the original. These lost nothing of their power in the process, retaining all the textural qualities of the drawing, from a smudgy chalk line to a decisive pen stroke.

About Mary Moore
Mary Moore is the only child of British artist and sculptor Henry Moore. Together with Mary’s mother Irina, they founded the Henry Moore Foundation, the first single artist foundation in the UK. Mary Moore has curated numerous exhibitions and written extensively on her father’s life and work as well as appearing on radio and television programmes internationally.
Alongside promoting and protecting her father’s legacy, Mary Moore runs a vintage clothing store in Dorset.

About Edith Cheung
