ReMODEL brings together a diverse group of internationally recognized artist-educators from California colleges to begin a conversation about the state of sculpture education now and generate multiple visions for its future. The daylong symposium is an opportunity to explore sculpture tradition, the “expanded field,” and the open-ended possibilities for curriculum design that the intermingling of the two has created. ReMODEL is a think tank to reinvigorate sculpture education and to create a more inclusive and vital academic practice.
ReMODEL responds to a renewed interest in pedagogy and seeks to redefine sculpture skills and curriculum for the 21st century. Over the past 50 years a revolution in the discipline has occurred, as artists from diverse backgrounds and methods of working have pushed the boundaries of participation and practice.
