Sculpture (MA)

About

Visitors to the programme often comment that the work they encounter embodies a non-hierarchical relation to the discipline. That is, there was a strong and consistent sense from feedback that our students are not so much concerned with building upwards to assert traditional notions of a singular discipline but are more involved with the task of constructing meaning across varied and diverse formats and processes. The CHS tutor Jonathan Miles referred to this tendency as a ‘becoming of sculpture’. The place of text, performance, photography, painting, drawing, moving image, coding, AI, sound and weaving appeared throughout the student work on equal terms – rather than supporting a more finite and historical idea of ‘sculptural form’.

On the sculpture programme we would like to acknowledge recent events by inviting you to join us in vehemently rejecting discrimination of any kind. The fight against racial inequality begins with each of us. We believe that every single one of us is responsible for standing up and speaking out against discrimination and racism. It is not enough to not be racist, we must be anti-racist.

Everything Is Sculpture: Download EiS PDF Everything Is Sculpture: Immaterial Constructions / Material Realities sets out to interrogate new contexts and issues that draw from and affect the production and reception of sculpture today.
