It is situated in the heart of the city next to Leeds Art Gallery and is connected to it by a walkway so that visitors can move freely between the two venues.

The Institute is open year round, free of charge and showcases the best in international sculpture, both historical and contemporary. It also runs a world-class programme of research and events and is home to the country’s leading sculpture archive.
