Rebound: The Sculpture Question Colloquium
The Sculpture Question Research Group at UCA, Canterbury invites you to attend Rebound: The Sculpture Question Colloquium from Wed 29 – Fri 31 October. Please see attached agenda and details of locations (the Colloquium will take place in Folkestone and Canterbury across three days).
Rebound: The Sculpture Question Colloquium is an opportunity to explore the role of research and teaching in the context of current art school / art university institutional models. Through discussion we will arrive at observations, insights and further questions related to pertinent issues that we are confronted with as artists, cultural researchers, professors, students, administrators and publishers in our institutions. How do we foster an art school that puts critical engagement at the forefront and encourages the unique role that artists can play in advancing this discourse? The Colloquium includes participants from France, the UK, Canada and the USA. Their specific cultural and institutional similarities and differences will deepen our deliberations. As a concrete outcome we will summarize our discussions to make a collective statement.
This event will be hosted by artist Dr. Cathy Busby (Vancouver) with guests Roger Conover, Executive Editor of MIT Press (Cambridge, Mass), and Ella Tetrault(Berlin), recent MFA graduate, Public Art and New Artistic Strategies at the Bauhaus.
The Colloquium is part-funded by the ICR project (Interregional Culture-led Regeneration) an initiative selected under the European Cross-border Cooperation Programme Interreg IV A France (Channel) – England, co funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
We have a limited number of places and would appreciate if you could confirm your attendance by Wed 22 Oct to Amie Rai at firstname.lastname@example.org (please indicate if you are able to attend the entire programme).
