Dunseath, J, Ayling, N, Bax, O, Black, H and Wallbank, J (2014) Making sculpture: views from the studio. In: Collaborating with Caro, 10 October 2014, Central St Martins, London.
Throughout his career Caro collaborated with assistants and other artists in the production of his sculpture. Jenny Dunseath (chair), Neil Ayling, Olivia Bax, Hamish Black and John Wallbank will discuss their experience of working for Caro, and how this has informed their own practice as artists. This session is part of a symposium to explore the sculpture and teaching of Anthony Caro (1924-2013) through a series of talks and panel discussions with artists, academics and studio assistants.

While Caro’s individual achievements as an artist are self-evident his commitment to sculpture as a social activity is less well known or documented. As a teacher at St Martin’s from the late fifties he abolished individual working spaces, and insisted on discussing sculpture in group ‘Crits’ and public ‘Forums’. In the eighties he founded the Triangle Workshops, which brought artists from around the world together for a number of weeks, to make art alongside each other in a ‘pressure-cooker situation’ where competition and discussion were encouraged.
