William Tucker grew up in England and studied at Oxford and at St. Martin’s College of Art and Design. He started showing his work in the 1960s and has had numerous solo and group exhibitions in London, the United States, and internationally. In 1978 he moved to the United States and taught at Columbia University and the New York Studio School, becoming an American citizen in 1985.

He has received numerous awards and commissions over the years, including a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1981; a National Endowment for the Arts Award in 1986; a Sculpture Center Award for Distinction in Sculpture in 1991; a commission for a large-scale sculpture for Bilbao, Spain, in 1996; and the Lifetime Achievement Award at the International Sculpture Center in 2010. His work is held in many collections, including the Guggenheim Museum and the Museum of Modern Art in New York; the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, D.C.; and Storm King Art Center in Mountainville, NY.

Tucker also is a writer, having published the influential The Language of Sculpture, Thames & Hudson, London, 1974; and a number of scholarly articles.

Of his sculptures, Michael Brenson of The New York Times has written, “Each is at the same time turned inward and pushing at the space around it. Each shifts between fragment and whole, between the appearance of heroism and the reality of physical limits and struggle.”
