      Sculpture in Scotland Symposium: organised by the Scottish Society for Art History in association with Art UK and Edinburgh College of Art, University of Edinburgh

      The SSAH's two-day symposium for 2019 will explore sculpture in Scotland. It celebrates the launch of the Art UK Sculpture Project, which will create a comprehensive record of publicly owned sculpture in Scotland, and across the UK, for the first time. It will enable public institutions to enhance knowledge of their collections, provide online access (www.artuk.org), and enable audiences to engage with sculpture. The symposium will share exciting new research and scholarship on sculpture in Scotland, past and present.
