Tickets £10 per surgery
Refreshments and lunch provided

Join us for an ambitious all day professional practice symposium bringing together artists and educators within the studio spaces of Standpoint to explore the critical context and scope of contemporary sculpture. The day will give unique access to all resident studios, a choice of artist-to-artist talks, networking opportunities and lunch.

The symposium will explore how sculpture has crossovers in all areas of contemporary arts practice, with a particular reference to Standpoint’s resident studios of printmaking, letterpress, ceramics and painting. Through studio visits, talking surgeries and networking we aim to open up dialogue and discuss the interchange of ideas and approaches in current sculptural practice.

Throughout the day attendees will be able to visit Standpoint’s studios, speak to artists, see their working environments and address any individual concerns. The programme of 12 bookable talking surgeries, of which 2 will have a practical element, will take place in the intimate setting of the studios where guests artists have been invited to ‘talk sculpture’ in conversation with the residents and audience. Each surgery will be limited to 10 attendees to encourage a dynamic group exchange. Networking, and sharing of ideas and opportunities, will take place throughout the day and over an informal communal lunch in the gallery.
