Looking forward to presenting at Art UK’s “Rediscovering our sculpture” symposium on 11th – 12th March 2021, via Zoom.
After working for 3 years as Photography Manager at Art UK on their sculpture project we, my job share partner (Jessie Maucor) and I, will be talking about the photography and photographic training applied during the project. Below is a brief description of the symposium and if you’re interested in joining please follow the link at the bottom.
Many thanks to the Russell-Cotes Art Gallery and Museum for the use of the banner.
The conference is the culmination of nearly four years work to digitise thousands of sculptures across the UK, held in collections and seen in our public spaces.
There will be talks from Art UK staff on sculpture digitisation, our learning and engagement programme and new sculpture discoveries through Art Detective. We 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. These include presentations from our project partners VocalEyes, CultureStreet, the Royal Society of Sculptors and the Royal Photographic Society.
