Biographical examination of the life and work of the highly acclaimed American self-taught sculptor Judith Scott, presented in The Museum of Everything's Exhibition #4.1, the UK's first retrospective of Scott's work.
Judith Scott was born deaf and with Down's Syndrome. Her artistic practice developed at the Creative Growth Art Center in California, where she first began to bind found materials with yarn, string and fabric. She went on to gain international recognition with leading figures such as Cindy Sherman, David Byrne and Mathew Higgs who cites Scott's work as among the most important of the 20th Century.
The piece was made for BBC 2's The Culture Show, presented by Miranda Sawyer and features interviews with Scott's twin sister Joyce, Creative Growth director Tom di Maria and The Museum of Everything founder James Brett.
