International Curatorial Residency Symposium 2018: Exploring the Third Dimension

‘Exploring the Third Dimension’ was a one-day symposium that examined curatorial practice in relation to sculpture through the experiences of international curators working at the top of their field. The day explored different models of display, with reference to cultural activism, education, and engagement with three-dimensional artworks, and invited questions such as how might we think differently about sculpture as an art historical category in its own right.
