Following the successful inaugural Sydney Sculpture Conference in 2016 which formed part of the 20th Anniversary Sculpture by the Sea celebrations, the 2017 conference will feature leading international and Australian speakers who will discuss the importance, impact, challenges and opportunities of ‘Sculpture: in public space’.
We are pleased to announce that German based, European-wide ‘sculpture network’ is our 2017 international partner. As Europe’s leading platform for the promotion, development and facilitation of contemporary sculpture, ‘sculpture network’ are working with Sculpture by the Sea to program the conference and build its international profile. We look forward to welcoming our European speakers and delegates to Sydney later this year.
Programmed to bring together artists, curators, collectors, academics, arts professionals & enthusiasts, the annual Sydney Sculpture Conference aims to develop collaborative partnerships that foster creative ideas exchange between local, national and international sculpture and art communities; while raising the profile, interest and awareness of sculpture across Australia.
For the first time this year, we will also be offering an optional ‘conference day two’ on 3rd November which will feature walking tours to provide further opportunities for delegates to explore themes and continue discussions that arise at ‘conference day one’.
The 2017 program will be launched in early June with Early Bird tickets on sale shortly after. Be kept up to date and join our delegate database, just email ‘JOIN’ to [email protected]
