ISConnects is an exciting collaborative effort between the International Sculpture Center and other world-renowned organizations. Launched in 2011 with the generous support of the Johnson Art and Education Foundation, ISConnects explores the unique perspectives on sculpture in the contemporary art world. Together, the ISC and its partner organizations offer intimate and accessible programming that addresses cutting-edge, timely trends in sculpture through lively and insightful discourse.
Each ISConnects program features presenters that include emerging and established artists, journalists and authors, academics and arts administrators, ISC Award winners and many other individuals with unique viewpoints on sculpture.
Programming includes special access to traveling exhibitions, conversations with artists, panel discussions and much more. Each event is different from the next! Canít attend an event? You can watch for free, here, on the ISConnects website.
