Franta Belsky, The Lesson, Bethnal Green, 1955 (detail)

To mark the centenary of the birth of Czech-born sculptor Franta Belsky (1921-2000), who settled in the UK in 1948, Insiders/Outsiders, in partnership with the Czech Embassy, Stephenson art and the Ben Uri Gallery and Museum, will host an event to pay tribute both to Belsky and to his sculptor wife Irena Sedlecká, who died in August 2020. Art historian and museum consultant Peter Cannon-Brookes, author of the book Czech Sculpture, 1800-1938, who knew both sculptors personally, will be joined by Nicola Baird, Research Officer at the Ben Uri Research Unit (BURU). and curator of its 2019 exhibition Czech Routes to Britain.
