The first Expanding Fields cross-university workshop was held in November 2011 and tested Krauss’ seminal expanded field diagram to explore what sculpture is, can be, and could be, in our current social, political and cultural context. The intensive four-day programme included walks, talks, performances, testing, making and presenting. Participants came from fine art, graphics and theory undergraduate courses at Wimbledon, Chelsea, Camberwell and Central Saint Martins.
Expanding Fields was devised, produced and hosted by AIR, with lead artists Neville Gabie and Gavin Wade, theory mentor Alison Green and graphics mentor Robert Sollis. It was generously supported by the Patrons Programme as a conclusion to University of the Arts London’s Shaping Sculpture project.
