The fourth edition of sculpture network’s New Year’sEvent, takes place on the 20th of January 2013. Sculpture enthusiasts meet at over 40 locations in 13 countries – in person and virtually through video-live stream. As a participating host at the above address, Darb 1718 invites you and all art lovers to be our guest, at this unique European event. Kindly, fill in the registration form.
- Meet some of the artists participating in the Mashrou3 Hagar (Art Empowers!) Exhibition and discuss with them their artwork.
- Music performance by the singer, composer and songwriter Adam Clark Miller.
- Video screening of nyb'13 images of members' works.
Celebrating three-dimensional art is the European event’s main focus. Art studios, galleries, private collectors, cultural institutions, art academies, foundries etc. welcome guests to enjoy sculpture, in an open networking opportunity.
nyb’13 will be hosted in Austria, Denmark, Egypt, France, Germany, Italy, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Great Britain, Poland, Switzerland and the Netherlands. Each venue carries out a personalised program ranging from “meet the artists”, lectures, discussions, guided tours, studio visits, public casting and much more – in addition to toasting the New Year.
Venues will connect via video-live stream, at 11:00 (CET) creating one huge European gathering around sculpture. From local to international and beyond spatial boundaries, sculpture network’s links become tangible.
As in former years, the event is organised by the non-profit European association sculpture network. Initiated in 2004 in Germany, with the aim of enhancing public perception and acceptance of three-dimensional art, while encouraging interdisciplinary dialogue, the organisation currently has, approximately, 1000 members, in 43 countries. Members include artists, art professionals, art organisations, collectors and friends of the arts.
