‘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.
Hauser & Wirth Somerset's second International Curatorial Residency brought together five influential curators from around the world to spend five days immersed in its ethos and programming of the gallery. During the residency, the curators – each bringing their own personal experiences and knowledge – engage with artists, gallery staff and members of the local community, inspiring their creative discourse.
