London Conference to celebrate the National Sculpture Symposium and the launch of a publication.


 It is an opportunity to meet and listen to the artists that participated talking about the artwork produced and to discuss the phenomenon of the outdoor sculptures.

In June 2014 ForumArts curated the first National Sculpture Symposium. A selection panel of Julian Wild (ForumArts), Oliver Hawkins (Marshall Murray) and Alma Zevi (curator and writer) chose 6 artists to work intensively over 10 days to create ambitious and large-scale outdoor sculptures at Riverhill Himalayan Gardens in Kent.
