What is Mapping Sculpture?
Mapping the Practice and Profession of Sculpture in Britain and Ireland 1851-1951 is the first comprehensive study of sculptors, related businesses and trades investigated in the context of creative collaborations, art infrastructures, professional networks and cultural geographies.
The University of Glasgow, in partnership with the Victoria & Albert Museum and Henry Moore Institute , launched the project in September 2007. This is a major three-year research programme supported by a substantial grant from the Arts and Humanities Research Council, with additional funding from the British Academy and Henry Moore Foundation. The primary outcome of Mapping Sculpture 1851-1951 will be an open access online database on the GU website with postings of articles analyzing the results of the research. The database launch will coincide with exhibitions in the V&A's Gilbert Bayes Gallery and a collections display at the Henry Moore Institute.
