ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
This year we are initiating our first juried online exhibition + art book featuring ‘contemporary sculpture’. For the purposes of this project, the term, ‘contemporary sculpture’ refers to sculpture—produced today. Within this expanded context, sculpture is understood as carving and modeling from traditional materials like stone, metal, wood, and clay, but it is not confined to these materials or processes. Submissions may include but not be limited to a combination of Cubist, Constructivist, Dadaist, Futurist, Pop-Art, Minimalist, Conceptual art influences and/or assemblage or installation.
