After successfully curating the First West London Art Prize, and organising the First National Sculpture Symposium in England in 2014, we are opening a call to UK based and international artists to participate in an outdoor Sculpture Symposium for 11 days during the summer 2016.

The Symposium is a residency opportunity for artists to make an entirely new sculpture, to work alongside other artists and to discuss their work. The focus of the symposium is to make work inspired by and in response to the 130 acres and 180 years of the Himalayan Gardens at Riverhill House. Artists are welcome to visit the gardens prior to submission, or base their piece on the images and video provided. Artists can work with natural or manmade materials.

The Symposium will consist of an 11 day residency in which 5 selected artists will each make a new piece of work. London Sculpture Workshop will provide an open workshop space with access to basic tools including woodwork, metalwork and welding equipment. Mechanical and manual assistance in moving work can be given on site. The selection of materials can be decided by the artists, but they have to create work that will survive outside for at least 2 years.
