Each year our research programme is organised into specific areas of enquiry, explored through themed Research Seasons.
Each season includes a range of research events, conferences, lectures, film screenings and discussions, designed to showcase new thinking on different aspects of sculpture.

New research uncovers the underlying messages behind monumental sculpture.
In this season we explore the relationship between monuments, gender and sexuality; re-examine monuments in the light of colonial memory; and consider artists’ responses to monumentality.
The practicalities of how artists approach making sculpture, and their relationship with skilled fabricators, has often been shrouded in mystery.
We examine the blurred lines between art, craft and industry, revealing how sculptors realise their vision through collaboration and exchange.
