Working in sculpture: gender, diversity and creativity

stage@leeds, University of Leeds

As part of Yorkshire Sculpture International’s public programme Professor Griselda Pollock, an art historian working in international, postcolonial feminist studies in the visual arts, chaired 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 considered gender, making sculpture, feminism and wider challenges related to cultural identity, with a focus on 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 included Eleanor Clayton, Curator at The Hepworth Wakefield and Natalie Rudd, Senior Curator at the Arts Council Collection and artists Emii Alrai, Veronica Ryan and Laura Barker.

Listen back to the discussion here.

This event was 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.
