Joseph Beuys @ The Hunterian

Well, I finally got a chance to see this, and it didn't disappoint. The exhibition is located in the end section of the main room in Glasgow's Hunterian Museum. It's quite a compact display of his work but there's just enough to mull over.

I find Joseph Beuys quite fascinating as an artist. His choice and use of materials mark him out a true pioneer of the art world.

His famous use of felt and fat are shown in several of the pieces in the show, including the iconic 'fat chair'.

You can read a review of the exhibition from The Herald Newspaper here.
