About this film
Qabir Alli and Marianne Whiting are alumni of the ARTiculation Prize. In this short film, they discuss Barbara Hepworth's sculpture Family of Man (conceived 1970 and cast 1972), exploring the relationships between the sculptural group, landscape and the viewer, as well as Hepworth's attention to materials.
This film is part of a series made by HENI Talks in collaboration series with ARTiculation celebrating 'Young Voices' engaging with art. ARTiculation is the Roche Court Educational Trust's national and international public speaking initiative, championing the appreciation and discussion of art. It enables a wide range of students aged between 14 and 23 to develop their confidence and ability to express their opinions, thoughts and reactions to the visual world.
The film is not subtitled, but a transcript is available.
