June 19–23, 2014

The 7th ICCCIA is being hosted at the Pedvale Open-Air Art Museum in Latvia during the week of the national Latvian celebration of the Summer Solstice. This conference will explore the conceptual and aesthetic context of sculptural iron casting and its effect on contemporary art, forms of ritual and the transformation of landscape. 

As a platform for an international educational exchange, the ICCCIA is unprecedented in sculptural history. Artists, students and educators from all over the world work shoulder to shoulder on molds, iron pours and sculpture projects, dialogue side by side on sculptural concepts and aesthetic explorations at panel discussions and presentations, and exhibit sculpture to sculpture in outdoor, experimental and open call exhibitions of art.
