Lucy Tomlins, Director of Pangaea Sculptors’ Centre in conversation with Castlefield Gallery Curator Matthew Pendergast and No Particular Place to Go? – 35 years of sculpture at Castlefield Gallery guest Curators Dr Clare O’Dowd and John Plowman, alongside exhibiting artist Nicola Ellis .
Built around Pangaea Sculptors’ Centre’s commitment to making the making visible, this informal discussion event revealed what goes into the making of both artworks and exhibitions, both conceptually and materially, taking No Particular Place to Go? – 35 years of sculpture at Castlefield Gallery as a starting point for conversation. The event explored links between current sculptural practice and the legacies of the more established artists in the exhibition.
This event was free to attend.
