Utopia 2016: A year of Imagination and Possibility, are four seasons of events marking the 500th anniversary of Thomas More’s influential text Utopia. Part of their spring highlights, Out There, at Somerset House, produced by Historic England tells the story of public artworks that have been lost, stolen, damaged or destroyed in the UK. The exhibition will feature ephemera relating to Flanagan’s Cambridge Piece (1972) for the Peter Stuyvesant Sculpture in the City Project (1972). The sculpture was badly received by the public and was vandalised amid calls by a local Vicar in the press to “Blow Up Revolting Art”. Information on these press cutting, on the artwork and the Peter Stuyvesant Sculpture in the City Project can be found in the archive section of our website here.
