More About the Author
Since November 2010 Le Feuvre has led the Henry Moore Institute, a centre for the study of sculpture, as Head of Sculpture Studies. Setting out to expand the understanding and scholarship of historical and contemporary sculpture, the organisation presents a year-round programme of exhibitions, conferences and lectures, as well as developing research, collections and publications. The Institute is a part of The Henry Moore Foundation, which was set up by Moore in 1977 to encourage appreciation of the visual arts, especially sculpture. The Institute's role within The Foundation is to place sculpture right at the centre of the writing of art history.
Her curated exhibitions at the Institute include 'Katrina Palmer: The Necropolitan Line', 'Paul Neagu: Palpable Sculpture', 'Gego:Line as Object', 'Sarah Lucas: Ordinary Things', 'The Event Sculpture' and 'Robert Filliou: The Institute of Endless Possibilities'. Between 2005 and 2009 Le Feuvre directed the contemporary art programme at the National Maritime Museum, working with artists including Lawrence Weiner, Esther Shalev-Gerz and Renee Green.
Her independent curatorial projects include 'British Art Show 7: in the Days of the Comet', the seventh iteration of the quinquennial survey of art made in Britain (with Tom Morton). She regularly contributes to journals, publications and exhibition catalogues, as well to academia. Editorial work includes the Henry Moore Institute's journal 'Essays on Sculpture,' the MIT Press compilation 'Failure' in the Whitechapel Art Gallery's 'Documents on Contemporary Art' series and the second issue of 'NOIT,' the journal of John Latham's Flat Time House, on the topic of burning. In 2014-15 she has written on artists that include Lara Favaretto, Thomas Houseago, Ian Kiaer, Bruce McLean and Virginia Overton and on her obsession, failure.
'More than just a fine portfolio of classic photojournalism - it is also a visual history of the 20th century.' -- Amateur Photographer, May 20, 2006
'Priceless...some truly memorable and far-reaching images, pictures that clearly live up to the collection's rather grand title.' -- Big Issue, May 15, 2006

Have to say I haven't picked it up much since initially looking through it, though it's a great tabletop book.
