The Burlington Magazine and the Public Statues and Sculpture Association – VIRTUAL – Toppling Statues
23 November - 10:00 - 24 November - 16:00Free
Public sculpture has become a focus for controversy at this volatile time, making it an opportune, indeed overdue, moment for an online webinar on Toppling Statues. The event is being co-hosted by The Burlington Magazine and the newly-formed Public Statues and Sculpture Association (PSSA).
It is intended to stimulate open-minded discussion and to help contextualise and advance understanding of the thousands of sculptures in public spaces in the UK and across the globe. It will constitute a serious academic debate to highlight the sculptures and their makers, the subjects depicted, their social and economic histories, and the ways in which such sculptures are viewed today.
