MSA Talks: An Online Panel Discussion Series

The Covid-19 pandemic has drastically changed artists’ ways of working, thinking, and communicating in the past few months. In order to make sense of this as a community, the Mid-South Sculpture Alliance Board of Directors invites you to attend a special online series of panel discussions throughout 2020. Within this series, we will present monthly live broadcasts featuring professionals, educators, our members, and more. These panels will cover an array of topics that explore and discuss current issues within the field of contemporary sculpture. The panel discussions will be live and available free to the public as well as archived for further viewing after the live event.

The second panel in the series, Tearing Down Monuments, will focus on the current protest and removal of sculptural monuments, what can be done with them and what can replace them. 

Panelists will present for 45 minutes., followed by a 45 minutes Q&A segment. Audience members are encouraged to ask questions in the comments section to be selected by the announcer. 

Join us for the live event on Facebook on Wednesday, September 30th, 2020 at 7pm EST

The first of this series, “The Online Sculpture Classroom,” was focused on finding innovative ways to teach sculpture online during a time when students may not have access to equipment, tools, or facilities. Professionals shared their experience as current professors and gave our audience innovative ideas on how to navigate teaching sculpture online. MFA student, Nyasha Madamobe joined the panel and provided a student perspective on the successes and challenges of learning sculpture online. The panel will lasted 45 minutes and included a live question and answer section.
