|Changchun China International Sculpture Convention 2003|
Welcome to anyone involved with sculpture!
Convention dates: 6, 7 and 8 September 2003
Sculptors - indeed anyone involved with sculpture around the world - all are invited to attend the International Sculpture Convention 2003 in Changchun, China. The city of Changchun in Jilin Province ("Dongbei" - North Eastern China), will host next year's International Sculpture Conference on the 6th, 7th and 8th of September 2003 . The theme for the Sculpture Convention is "Friendship - Peace - Spring".
Sculptors, art critics, professors of sculpture (and academics of all levels), urban planning officials, foundry representatives, sculpture tool and equipment manufacturers and sculpture collectors will see this as a unique opportunity to meet and exchange. As of March 2003 - 300 Chinese artists and 200 foreign artists have already been confirmed to attend this event! Don't miss it!!!
The International Sculpture Convention will encompass an exhibition of sculpture maquettes, lectures and forums. It will also be preceded by an International Sister-Cities Sculpture Symposium held between August 9th and September 5th - for which sculptors from countries who have not participated in previous years (see list) were urgently invited to submit proposals by the 28th of February.
The Organizers are currently having a special website created; in the meantime, all would-be attendees may register their interest via this website.
Sculptor Laury Dizengremel, French but resident in England, will be the Leader for the European Delegation of sculptors and other guests from Western Europe. Sculptor Judi Michelle Young from Canada will be the Leader of the North American Delegation. Sculptor Jock Hildebrand will be leading a delegation from Western Canada. Laury and Judi are professional sculptors who have previously visited Changchun where they were invited to create monumental sculptures (in the context of the China Changchun International Sculpture Symposium of 2001).
