Workshop: ‘Printed Stone: Sculpture and its Images’, 12 June 2017

Venue: Institute of Advanced Studies, University College London

 

This interdisciplinary workshop will explore the relationship between sculpture and its printed images, whether produced for reasons of commerce or conservation, public edification or private gain. Our participants will interrogate the process of translation and mediation between two and three dimensions, asking how the materiality of different forms of sculpture has been rendered using various technologies of print-making, from the creation of an intaglio plate to advanced digital mapping techniques and 3D printing. We welcome the attendance and contribution of anyone interested in larger questions of representation, reproduction, materiality, media, technology, and process.

 

Keynote Speaker: Alex Potts (University of Michigan).

 

Participants include: Malcolm Baker (University of California, Riverside), Allison Stielau (University College London), Richard Taws (University College London), Danielle Thom (Museum of London), Emma Payne (University College London) and Cora Gilroy-Ware (Institute of Advanced Studies).

 

Organised by Cora Gilroy-Ware (Institute of Advanced Studies) and Brigid von Preussen (Columbia University) with the generous support of the Institute of Advanced Studies, University of London.
