Ode to a Tool: RBS Fellows Debate




Ode to a Tool: RBS Fellows Debate

Helaine Blumenfeld OBE FRBS, Bruce Gernand FRBS and Michael Petry FRBS

The Royal British Society of Sculptors is proud to announce the first RBS Fellows debate, Ode to a Tool, on 28 January 2015 from 6:30 to 8:30pm. Three eminent RBS Fellows, Helaine Blumenfeld OBE FRBS, Bruce Gernand FRBS and Michael Petry FRBS, will introduce their most loved tools sparking a lively debate on the role of the hand, the digital and the skills of the master craftsman in the creation of contemporary sculpture chaired by Geoffrey Matthews, RBS Council Member and Secretary of the Chelsea Arts Club.

The vastly disparate styles and methodologies of these distinguished artists will illuminate the central theoretical discourse regarding the contributions of concept and craft to art. Refracted through the context of three contemporary art practices, surprising synergies and differences emerge in what will be a dynamic panel discussion.
