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.

Viral Art

Now here's an issue: art in conflict with culture – the viral ghost bike placed to commemorate the death of Carolyn Rawlins, the cyclist killed near the corner of Bourke and Swanston streets in Melbourne is carefully attached to the bronze sculpture
“Three Businessmen Who Brought Their Own Lunch: Batman, Swanston And Hoddle” by Alison Weaver and Paul Quinn (1993)

Or is it the sort of statement that we'll see more often as expression is claimed as the domain of ordinary people?
