Service Description

Through this ten-part seminar seminar will consider objects as artworks: how do we understand these ‘things’, and what do they produce? Through an examination of a wide range of historical and theoretical resources we will look at sculpture as a loosely-bounded discipline that incorporates sets of formal concerns, theoretical positions, challenges of staging, installation and narrative, all bound together through the notion of a fundamental material encounter in physical space. We will look at key historical precedents and a wide range of theoretical resources – moving through key case studies and texts to contemporary debates around new materialisms and object-oriented ontologies, whilst always returning to the question of how these ideas are manifested in practice. We will consider the influence of related fields: design and architecture, art, philosophy and critical theory. We will consider objects that are made, loaned, copied and appropriated, and how they are articulated in public. This seminar will give you a solid foundation in sculpture and installation practice by addressing how sculpture as a material proposition might function, how it can be ‘read’, and key considerations that apply to its making and exhibition.
