Standing on Trafalgar Square’s Fourth Plinth is a human headed winged bull reconstructed from an Assyrian statue by American-Iraqi artist Michael Rakowitz (b. 1973). Sculptor, detective and occasional chef, he takes his cue from historic buildings and artefacts to create enthralling environments.
Join Whitechapel Gallery staff for an audio-described tour of this major exhibition by Michael Rakowitz, an artist that makes moments of silence and erasure visible by uncovering unexpected connections and stories.
