Symposium | Public Sculpture: From Process to Place

To mark the third installment of ‘Sculpture at Bermondsey Square’, VITRINE and Pangaea Sculptors’ Centre will be hosting an afternoon of talks and discussion featuring the three commissioned artists with curators, open call judges and a panel of experts, exploring issues within public sculpture today. This will be a rare opportunity to acquire behind the scenes insight into a curated public sculpture commissioning project.

Introduction by Lucy Tomlins, co-director of Pangaea Sculptors’ Centre and Alys Williams, founding director of VITRINE. Artists commissioned for Sculpture at Bermondsey Square will present their work in conversation with experts in the field: Karen Tang will converse with Sacha Craddock; Edwin Burdis with Ellen Mara De Wachter; and Frances Richardson with Rachel Withers.

Panel Discussion: Sacha Craddock, Ellen Mara De Wachter and Rachel Withers. Chaired by Alys Williams. The panel dialogue will explore the project and the selection and commissioning process of public sculpture more generally. This discussion will also consider the value of such commissions in cities and for citizens, as well as for the artists’ practice and development.

This will be followed with a dialogue on the ‘state of sculpture today’. Invited interlocutors will give their thoughts on key concerns surfaced over the course of the afternoon, after which the conversation will be opened out to the wider audience. Chaired by Marsha Bradfield.
