The Claremont Graduate University Art Department is pleased to host the 2013 ReMODEL 2 Sculpture symposium as part of its Bradshaw Conference Series on Saturday, October 19th from 9:30am-4pm at the Garrison Theatre. This event is free and open to the public. Over twenty internationally recognized artists from across California Universities and Colleges will present papers and dialog on the current state of sculpture pedagogy.
ReMODEL 2 looks to explore the responsibility within sculpture for handling critical theory and maintaining an ongoing and inclusively expansive dialog. As sculpture has experienced an incredible trans-disciplinary revolution over the past 50 years ReMODEL 2 explores the intersection of art and disciplines as varied as digital, video, time-based, performance, sound, light, installation, public practice, engineering, computer science, cultural studies, identity politics, literary theory, cultural hegemony and historiography.
Concurrent with the symposium will be an exhibition of the artists at the CGU Art Department Galleries, who are presenting including faculty from: Claremont Graduate University, Scripps, UCLA, UC Berkeley, Stanford, CCA, OTIS, Cal Arts, Art Center, UC San Diego, UC Santa Barbara, UC Davis, Cal State Long Beach, San Francisco Art Institute, and Hunter College.
