Rediscovering our sculpture: an Art UK symposium
The conference is the culmination of nearly four years work to digitise thousands of sculptures across the UK, held in collections and seen in public spaces.
There will be talks from Art UK staff on sculpture digitisation, their learning and engagement programme and new sculpture discoveries through Art Detective. They will share best practice on photography of sculpture, running community engagement events and delivering innovative activities for schools.
Talks from curators, art historians and learning professionals will consider public sculpture, innovative learning programmes, diversity and colonialism, and new discoveries in sculpture and sculptor research.
Royal Society of Sculptors Research Curator, Rosamund Lily West, will be presenting the paper "Every sculptor of any standing: Pioneering Women at the Royal Society of Sculptors" on Thursday 11 March, 4.15 - 5.30pm session.
