ICRA announces details of 2021 Annual Conference 'Sculpture and the Catalogue Raisonné from Antiquity to NFTs'

The ICRA Board is delighted to announce the details of it's 2021 Annual Conference which will take place online on Wednesday 1 and Thursday 2 December 2021. The title is ‘Sculpture and the Catalogue Raisonné: From Antiquity to NFTs’ and on both days the sessions will start at 1pm (UK time). The programme has been organised by Dr Sharon Hecker and we are indebted to her for securing an impressive cast of pre-eminent scholars and experts from around the world to make such a rich programme.

Whether traditionally made, ephemeral, or dematerialised, sculpture presents a host of fascinating challenges for those tasked with documenting, cataloguing, and archiving it. Panel topics include cutting-edge issues relevant to our times: Cataloguing Renaissance Sculpture; To Include or Exclude; Labelling and Terminology; Restoring, Conserving, Replicating and Fabricating; Lifetime and Posthumous; Dematerialisation: The Catalogue Raisonné and the Evolving Definition of Sculpture; 2D for 3D – Print, Digital, Audio: Different Media for Cataloguing Sculpture and Preparing for the Future.

The conference will follow the model of last year’s event and include a mixture of pre-recorded and live presentations. There will also be ample opportunity for questions and debate through the use of a chat feed and live Q&A sessions with our speakers. The ticket price is £200 for non ICRA members (concessions available). Please use the ticket booking form link below to book and pay for your ticket. The ticket price includes a link to attend all the sessions on both days as well as links to recordings of all the sessions, which will be emailed to attendees the week after the conference.
