23rd & 24th November, 10am-4pm
Free online event (Zoom)
Public sculpture has become a focus for controversy at this volatile time, making it an opportune, indeed overdue, moment for an online webinar on Toppling Statues. The event is being co-hosted by The Burlington Magazine and the newly-formed Public Statues and Sculpture Association (PSSA).
It is intended to stimulate open-minded discussion and to help contextualise and advance understanding of the thousands of sculptures in public spaces in the UK and across the globe. It will constitute a serious academic debate to highlight the sculptures and their makers, the subjects depicted, their social and economic histories, and the ways in which such sculptures are viewed today.
This free event will be hosted live via Zoom, registration is required. For more information, including the full programme and links to registration, please click here.
