We cooperate as an association to advance the practice of sculpture and the reputation and appreciation of sculpture and sculptors in the community. This is regardless of whether or not we make a living from sculpture and regardless of our preferred style or medium. To this end we support artists’ moral rights, we advocate a professional attitude to the production and presentation of work and encourage the artistic and intellectual stimulation of interaction amongst artists of all persuasions.

Contempora 2008 - Sculpture at Docklands

Docklands is big, bright and new and everything there is designed to compete for your attention. The show is well worth a visit, and you can judge for yourself how well the work sits in this manufactured environment. Contrast this with the motor show - open the first weekend of Contempora's run - where BMW isolated its show pieces in great pavilions of white, and lit them with all the theatre they can muster.
