Ceramics and Sculpture: Different Disciplines and Shared Concerns. 5 July 2012

Registration is now open for the conference Ceramics and Sculpture: Different Disciplines and Shared Concerns taking place on 5 July 2012 in Cardiff at Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales. More info contact: adutton@cardiffmet.ac.uk Book from website shown below.

About the Conference:
Relationships between ceramics and sculpture are a focus for research at Cardiff School of Art and Design. This research has demonstrated that the interests of ceramicists and sculptors in Britain have either overlapped or come into particularly sharp focus at certain periods.
The Henry Moore Institute, Leeds, has in the last few years awarded research fellowships to explore such relationships. Both ceramics and sculpture now have to make a case for their survival as discrete disciplines within higher education and increasingly categories are blurred.
Against this background the conference seeks to illuminate shared concerns by examining points of formal, conceptual, theoretical and material convergences between the two disciplines, while also addressing key points of difference.
Speakers:
Paper 1:  Michael Hose (Cardiff Metropolitan University) ‘What difference can a description make?’
Paper 2:  Conor Wilson
‘You can use clay, but you can’t do ceramics’: Some thoughts about why Ceramics isn’t Sculpture, based on the thinking of Eduardo Chillida and Robert Morris’
Paper 3:  Dr Isabel Hufschmidt (Mirko Mayer Gallery, Cologne, Germany) ‘The Edition of Sculpture in England:  A French spirit of commerce, English manufactories and the New Sculpture’
Paper 4:  Michael Tooby (independent researcher and curator) ‘The way in which a major museum’s collecting activity can transgress traditional taxonomies in a creative and rich manner’
Paper 5:  Alun Graves (Curator, Ceramics & Glass Collection, V&A) ‘Hans Coper: Sculpture in Architecture’
Paper 6:  Professor Stephen Dixon (Manchester Metropolitan University) ‘Why Clay?’
Keynote speaker:  Dr Jon Wood (Henry Moore Institute, Leeds) ‘Manual Thinking’
Panel - Q & A and discussion with Bonnie Kemske (editor of Ceramic Review), David Jones (University of Wolverhampton)
