Organised collaboratively by Arts Council Collection and Lakeside Arts, this informal and engaging day of presentations and discussion will shed light on the important contribution made by women to the field of modern and contemporary British sculpture. It brings together a panel of leading artists, curators and scholars who will share their latest research and thinking. There will be opportunities to reflect on individual practices, collective breakthroughs and areas ripe for further investigation.
Participants can attend either in-person or online via Lakeside’s livestreaming service. Please select how you would like to attend when booking.
