Autumn Art Lecture Series 2019: Sculpture in The City


29 Oct


26 Nov

Until recently, the sculptural arts have dominated the squares and public spaces of the city. This has never been an easy task. Such places put art in a difficult position: hard to avoid but open to attack. Some find the statue a source of delight while for others it represents a challenge to be contested. Indifference has also plagued this public art form. More recently, other more interactive interventions have usurped its role. Understanding public sculpture requires a multi-disciplinary approach. Political, social, historical and aesthetic issues are all at stake. This year’s Autumn Art Lectures touch on all these areas and aim to make us think not just about the past of public sculpture, but also its possible future.

The lectures commence on Tuesday 29 October and will run each week until Tuesday 26 November.

Each lecture starts at 6.30 pm and will take place in the Wills Memorial Building, Queen's Road, BS8 1RJ.

Further information and booking for each lecture is available.
