SculptureNOW brings together early and mid-career Canadian artists representing a range of approaches to the expanded field of sculpture. Organized in tag-team panels with a keynote speaker, this three-day symposium will explore sculptural and installation-based practices by comparing and contrasting various methodologies and approaches to subject matter: from representational to readymade, material to conceptual.
