The role of sculpture in our public spaces has changed somewhat over the years.
Our Victorian ancestors raised up statues of royalty – or public and military figures they admired – on pedestals.
These days, it’s more likely to be contemporary sculpture creating a different kind of impact on our streets.
It’s an interesting subject for debate and the subject of a talk to be given by a lecturer and writer – who specialises in contemporary art – at Bath Assembly Rooms at lunchtime on November 4th.
Arranged by the city’s Art Society, Anna Moszynska, takes as her subject “Fresh Encounters: Contemporary Sculpture and the Public Realm.”
That’s at 1.30 pm and visitors – who are very welcome – will be charged £10 at the door.
