The practicalities of making sculpture are often shrouded in mystery, from the secrets of the sculptor’s studio to the rarely acknowledged relationships between artists and skilled fabricators.

Exploring the blurred lines between art, craft and industry, this Research Season will make visible the ways in which sculptors in both historical and contemporary contexts have realised their vision through processes of collaboration and exchange.

This Research Season has been organised in collaboration with Pangaea Sculptors’ Centre and the Universities of Leeds, York and Sheffield.
