Royal British Society of Sculptors

Committed to the pursuit of excellence in the art form, the Society aims to inspire, inform and engage people of all ages and backgrounds with sculpture, to support the development of sculptors’ professional and creative practice and to promote good practice.

Sculpture Shock is generously supported by Nina and Samuel Wisnia through their COlab Programme.

We would also like thank the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea for supporting the delivery of this project and allowing us the use of a purpose built sculptor’s studio for one year from January to December 2013.  The studio was used by each of the three winners of the award for a three month period to allow them to prepare their work for the 4 day pop-up exhibition.  It had a particular resonance for the RBS and for the artists as it was once used by Dame Elisabeth Frink, a prominent figurative sculptor who worked there during the late 50s and early 60s.

Sculpture Shock wishes to thank Chiswick House and Gardens Trust and English Heritage for their support of the Historic Sculpture Shock 2015.
