Sculpture network start’19 in The sculpture Workshop, The Danish National Museum, Kongens Lyngby: 27 Januar 2019.
Sculpt the world with us – Sie sind herzlich eingeladen zu start’19, dem internationalen Fest für zeitgenössische Skulptur.
This day offers a rare opportunity for a visit to The Sculpture Workshop of the Danish National Museum at Brede Værk.
A day for sculpture: sculpture network connects people at more than 70 locations in 21 countries to celebrate three-dimensional art together.
On January 27, 2019 starting at 11.00 (CET), sculpture network and the international sculpture scene, including more than 5000 expected participants, will celebrate start, the International Celebration of Contemporary Sculpture, for the 10th time. Art lovers, interested enthusiasts, artists and experts come together in studios, galleries, museums and other art venues around the world. This year’s theme is “Three-dimensional art and society”.
sculpture-network.orgstart’19 is the 10th event of its kind. This extraordinary event has been bringing people in the international sculpture scene together every year since 2010. The participating studios, museums, galleries, sculpture parks and workshops host exhibitions, panel discussions, lectures, workshops, artist talks, installations and special guided tours on the topic of “Three-dimensional art and society”.
Art lovers, art professionals and interested people from all fields take advantage of the opportunity to exchange ideas and gain new stimulus and fresh motivation. The fact that three-dimensional art is a very special art form that thrives on haptics and different perspectives can be experienced at start’19 – in person at around 70 locations worldwide, but also live via social media.
Guests can share their impressions digitally via a photo wall. Content posted with the hashtag #start19 can be viewed by all visitors all over the world in virtual space and in real time on the screens on site. Thus, guests experience different points of view and are confronted with different perspectives – reinforcing the message that sculpture network has been conveying since September 2018 with the campaign #perspectivematters.
Isabelle Henn (board member): “For me, start’19 is such a special event format because it brings the art scene and the general public together. It’s not just professionals, but people from very different backgrounds who come together, united by a common passion for three-dimensional art.
This creates a lively exchange between people from different nations, professions and age groups. In this way, three-dimensional art encourages people to put themselves in someone else’s shoes, sometimes questioning their own established perspectives.”
This year approximately 70 host venues are located in 21 different countries: Bangladesh, Germany, Denmark, Finland, France, Grenada, Greece, Great Britain, India, Ireland, Italy, Croatia, Netherlands, Austria, Portugal, Sweden, Switzerland, Serbia, Spain, USA, United Arab Emirates. This year sculpture network welcomes among others:
Haus der Kunst Munich (DE), Belvedere Vienna (A), Museum of Contemporary Art Zagreb (HR), Palazzo Bembo Venice (I), Royal Society of Sculptors London (UK), the American University in Dubai (VAE), the sculpture park Château Sainte Marie (F) and the initiative MIET air (NL).
