Professor Griselda Pollock, an art historian working in international, postcolonial feminist studies in the visual arts, will chair a round-table discussion exploring the experiences of women working in sculpture, bringing together artists and those involved with collecting, commissioning and the art market.
This event will consider gender, making sculpture, feminism and wider challenges related to cultural identity. Focus will be given to the Arts Council Collection’s new touring exhibition of sculpture by women (due to launch in 2020), public realm sculpture by women at The University of Leeds and new commissions for Yorkshire Sculpture International.
Speakers include Eleanor Clayton, Curator at The Hepworth Wakefield and Natalie Rudd, Senior Curator at the Arts Council Collection. They will be joined by invited artists to enable the fullest exploration of sculpture making today.
This event is part of the Sculpture in the Round Conversations series organised by University of Leeds and Yorkshire Sculpture International, and in partnership with the Arts Council Collection.
