Richard Deacon

Richard Deacon’s sinuous abstract forms have established his place at the forefront of British sculpture since the 1980s. Since the beginning of the 1970s Deacon has written extensively on his own practice and in relation to contemporary art in general. Since 1981 Deacon has participated in many key group exhibitions throughout the world. A major retrospective of his work, 'The Missing Part', was shown at the Musée d’Art Moderne et Contemporain, Strasbourg, in 2010, travelling to the Sprengel Museum in Hannover in 2011. A full retrospective of his prints and drawings will be presented at the Folkwang Museum in Essen, Germany in 2016.


Deacon won the Turner Prize in 1987 and the Robert Jakobsen Prize, Museum Würth, Künzelsau, Germany, in 1995. In 1997 he was awarded Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres, France, elected a Royal Academician in 1998 and made CBE in 1999. In 2005 the University of Leicester awarded him an honorary doctorate. He was elected a member of the Akademie der Kunst in Berlin in 2010.
