An expert panel will gather at the Museum this week to explore issues facing contemporary sculptors today.
‘Who’s the Artist?’ (Thursday 21 January, 12.45-14.15) is an Open Forum held in Gallery 3 of the Museum to mark the closing stages of the 2009 Sculpture Promenade. This free panel discussion explores the changing roles of the contemporary sculptor and the studio that executes their work - as well as the implications for ideas of authorship, quality, originality and authenticity.
Chaired by Dr Tom Flynn, art critic, historian and author of The Body in Sculpture, ‘Who’s the Artist’ features:
Johannes von Stumm, President of the Royal British Society of Sculptors (RBS) and an exhibitor in the current Sculpture Promenade Rungwe Kingdon, Director of the Pangolin Foundry Helaine Blumenfeld, sculptor Timothy Potts, Director of The Fitzwilliam Museum
Please note: this event is free to the public, but places are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
