Forty venues throughout Europe will host sculpture network’s fourth annual celebration of contemporary sculpture, nyb’13 (New Year’s Brunch) on the 20th of January 2013. Professionals and friends of the arts meet in person and virtually, via video livestream. The international event focuses on celebrating and debating three-dimensional art, networking and enjoying sculpture. Each venue has a personalised program, ranging from meeting artists, lectures, studio visits, discussions, artist presentations, exhibitions, guided tours, public casting and much more—in addition to toasting the New Year.

The event is a once-a-year opportunity for networking with artists, collectors, art mediators, professionals and friends of the arts. The events take place in art studios, galleries, private collectors’ homes, cultural institutions, art academies and foundries, which are connected via video-live stream. This is Europe’s biggest annual gathering around sculpture with 2000+ expected participants.

The event is open to everybody interested in sculpture. So, if you would like to join us, check for your nearest nyb’13 location.
