Online Talks: Discovering Women Sculptors
We are pleased to announce two series of online talks ‘Discovering Women Sculptors from the 17th century to the present day’. Generations of women sculptors are gradually being rediscovered and acknowledged. This talented international sisterhood, many of whom have been forgotten, have skilfully practised sculpture through the centuries. Often determined, strong and resilient, they have literally left their chisel marks and fingerprints alongside those of men on the history of sculpture.
In these two exciting series of online talks, experts in the field rediscover these women sculptors from past centuries helping to lift them from obscurity to reveal their life and work, and converse with living artists to explore the challenges facing female sculptors today.
