Sculpture and poetry are two of the oldest known art forms. The connections between them are many and layered yet often seem to hide in plain sight, buried by histories and theories of division and specialism. Distinctions between the plastic and linguistic arts, and the intellectual conventions built upon those distinctions, encourage siloed traditions that tend to ignore or fetishise the qualities of one the other.

This two-day conference supported international speakers from a range of disciplines to think against epistemological borders between art history and theory and literary studies, comparative literature and linguistics.
