Documentation of an exhibition running from 19th November 2016 to 29th January 2017, curated by Jenny Dunseath & Mark Wilsher, accompanying the Artist Boss creative research project, which explores the relationship between artist and assistant. Initiated by Bath Spa University and Norwich University of the Arts, Artist Boss specifically focuses on the prolific sculptor Sir Anthony Caro (1924 – 2013), investigating the ‘traditional assistants’ role, its impact on learning and artistic careers.
