Yorkshire Sculpture Park (YSP) is an international centre for modern and contemporary sculpture, founded in 1977 by Sir Peter Murray and, since 2022, led by Clare Lilley. It is an independent charitable trust and registered museum situated in the 500-acre, 18th-century Bretton Hall estate in West and South Yorkshire. With an exceptional learning programme, rolling exhibitions, and permanent and changing sculptures sited in the landscape, across its history, YSP has worked with over 1,000 artists from more than 40 countries. They include Ai Weiwei, Fiona Banner, Tony Cragg, Leonardo Drew, Barbara Hepworth, Damien Hirst, Robert Indiana, KAWS, Lindsey Mendick, Henry Moore, Annie Morris, David Nash, Sean Scully, Chiharu Shiota, Yinka Shonibare CBE, David Smith, James Turrell, Joana Vasconcelos, Bill Viola and Erwin Wurm.

Across its 47-year history, YSP has worked with over 1,000 artists from more than 40 countries, on varied projects from short-term residencies to major surveys. YSP supports artists at vital stages in their careers and is rare in having the accommodation, workshops and expertise to enable open-ended and risk-taking practice, giving artists space, time and support to think and to develop new ideas.
