Sculpture Slam

We challenge you, your friends, and colleague to create a gigantic temporary sculpture using our huge coloured shapes, your bodies and your imagination.

Teams are competing for Sculpture Slam Trophy and the title of Sculpture Slam Winners 2017.

The competition, which runs from Mon 2 – Fri 27 Oct 2017, is inspired by Kaleidoscope, an exhibition of British art from the 1960s, which opens in our Mead Gallery on Thu 5 Oct 2017.

All entries can be seen below in our Slam Gallery

On campus during the day? Why not spend a lunch-break in our Creative Space or use it for a team building afternoon?

Things to consider

  • You sculpture can be a simple abstract shape, it could draw inspiration from your department or current affairs. It really is up to you.
  • Where you build your sculpture and how you take the photograph will give you further opportunities to be creative. You might consider making your sculpture inside your building or outdoors. You might take your photo from a high vantage point looking down, or from the ground up.
