“No Such Thing as a Free Lunch”, is an all woman show which, through a series of sensual and playful works, asks the viewer to reassess their understanding of sculpture. Set up in the unique ‘Round Room’ of the late-Victorian Lethaby Building, specifically designed to house the first Central School of Art and Design (soon to become Central Saint Martins), this exhibition disrupts the formality and austerity of its architectural environment by spotlighting a broad range of silly, yet subtly wry sculptures by four contemporary artists. In doing so, it plays with the academicism enshrined in the space and seeks to subvert both it and the Victorian modes of arts education that it represents.
