The medium of sculpture, particularly public art, continues to be male dominated. This national symposium will be an exciting opportunity to bring together female sculptural practitioners from across Canada to network, to discuss sculptural issues, and to share professional experiences and strategies.
What does it take to be a sculptor in today’s art world?
How are women flourishing in the field of sculptural media?
This symposium will provide an opportunity for all artists to broaden their understanding of three-dimensional practices, and engage in discussions with senior artists from across Canada, as well as Yolanda Paulsen from Mexico City.
Do not miss this opportunity to participate in the first Canadian conference to explore issues pertaining to women and 3-D work.
