Rediscovering our Sculpture: an Art UK symposium

Art UK is inviting submissions for papers for the conference ‘Rediscovering our sculpture’, which will be held from Friday 18 to Saturday 19 September 2020 at Cloth Hall Court, Leeds.

This symposium will celebrate the completion of Art UK’s ambitious sculpture project. It will be an opportunity to thank the project partners and funders. We will be able to share what we have learned and provide practical guidance on using sculpture for learning and engagement and methods of digitisation.

The conference will feature a selection of papers on a wide range of sculpture-related subjects. We welcome papers on topics that may include, but are not limited to:

Sculpture in the UK – research and mapping using Art UK data; new discoveries or research on sculptors, sculptures or collections; materials of sculpture; public sculpture

Sculpture curation – contemporary curation and collections development; collecting and dealing; acquiring new works; display and exhibition; collections research

Public engagement with sculpture – how we grow public interest in sculpture; interpretation and telling stories; access; digital engagement

We welcome proposals for 20-minute presentations. We will also consider proposals for shorter 10-minute case-study talks.

Please send an abstract of no more than 300 words, as well as a biography of around 200 words, to

The deadline for proposals is 9am, Monday 11 May 2020.
