22nd International Sculpture Conference – What is Sculpture in the 21st Century?

Highlights of the conference include keynote talks by Antony Gormley, Peter Noever, and Lucy Orta; an international roster of presenters; events at Tate Britain and Tate Modern; workshop demonstrations at the University of Arts, Chelsea College of Art and Design; opportunities for artists to share their work during daily ARTSLam sessions, networking activities, and a gallery “hop”. Attendees may also sign up for optional tours including visits to alternative art spaces in London, a trip to Cass Sculpture Foundation at Goodwood, and a post-conference weekend event at Yorkshire Sculpture Park in Wakefield. Additionally the ISC will host it’s 2010 Lifetime Achievement Award Gala dinner honoring this year’s winners Phillip King and William Tucker in conjunction with the conference. Events will be held in participating venues around London including Chelsea College of Art & Design, Tate Modern, Tate Britain, the National Gallery, and Kings Place.

“Sculpture is an important language for artists and for centuries has been a public manifestation of the importance of creativity and expression,” said Chris Wainwright, President of the University of the Arts London, the major collaborator of the ISC Conference. “In our contemporary climate with a growing application of technologies the possibilities for sculpture, however we chose to define it, are endless. The 22nd International Conference is of particular importance to our creative education environments as we continue to support and celebrate sculpture which requires a commitment to providing suitable resources including space itself as a key ingredient.”

Registration is open and available to ISC members and non-members. The registration deadline is March 16, 2010 or when capacity is reached. More details about the conference and all ISC events are available on the ISC website or by contacting [email protected]
