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.

Jo Felstead-Hill on Disruption

Jo Felstead-Hill "Fragment of a Journey"
from the Herring Island Exhibition
Hi All,

At the last committee meeting a short discussion regarding the concept of ‘disruption’ was mentioned.

Current as not only a word but a concept for changing technology, "disruptive innovation’ is applicable to the creative arts and by its very nature sculpture. The constant innovation and technological changes have moved the nature of creative sculptural practice and extended the possibilities available.

Sculpture as, ‘art off the wall’ , has potentially more impact and influence, its placement in a varying environments, offering scale, material and sensate experience. The strength of such an art form as not only aesthetically important but as socially reflective is surely vital to all, underpinned by embracing these changes.

How exciting to work at a time where these innovations are mainstream and accessible, adding to the artists toolbox.

Is ‘disruptive innovation’ by any other name ‘change’.?

From here we are racing towards the ASV Annual with a vast array of exciting and innovative work……
