Fresh Encounters: Contemporary Sculpture and the Public Realm

1.30 pm Monday  November 4th 2019

The role of sculpture has changed substantially in recent times. In this lecture, we look at how the concept of monument and memorial, familiar since classical antiquity, shifts towards other concerns. how  does sculpture now plays a vitally important role in terms of site in the city; how the sculpture park comes into being in Britain in the mid-20th century, and grows exponentially across the globe; how water has attracted artists to make exceptional works in or alongside it; and not least, how sculpture has become a challenging and exciting space for social encounter.
