Now entering its ninth year, SculptureX (i.e. sculpture exchange) is a teaching and networking resource aimed at promoting collaboration among art teaching institutions within the region and to increase appreciation of  visual arts programs of sculpture in its broadest meaning. Operating under the nexus of the Sculpture Center in Cleveland, the fundamental goal of SculptureX is to encourage and foster the intellectual pursuit of compassionate thinking, while discovering new forms and definitions of visual communication and understanding.

 

ScupltureX 2018: Igniting Change  

This year's symposium and its associated exhibitions explore Social Practice, which has long been a powerful means of challenging existing norms and conditions.  Often expressed through community engagement, performative installations, political encounters and environmental activities, Social Practice in art is sometimes ephemeral, often experiential, but always evolving.  SculptureX 2018 investigates some current manifestations of this important discipline. 

Programming for the two- day event keynote addresses by Mel Chin and Laurie Jo Reynolds, presentations by noted artists from around the region, evening networking events, and guided tours of Toledo Museum of Art, University of Toledo Center for the Visual Arts, and each of the six exhibitions.
