National Conference on Contemporary Cast Iron Art & Practices

 

Sloss Furnaces National Historic Landmark
Birmingham, Alabama
March 31 - April 3, 2021

Due to the current pandemic, the National Conference on Contemporary Cast Iron Art and Practices (NCCCIAP) will be held virtually in 2021, but we look forward to supplementing and deepening these remote sessions around our 2021 theme, Lived Histories/Imagined Futures.  As a guiding framework for engaging the lived histories and future possibilities of cast iron, we will draw from our shared archive, the Pig Iron Rough Notes, and we will produce a new volume of the Rough Notes with contributions from conference participants. 

The Steering Committee for the National Conference on Contemporary Cast Iron Art and Practices invites individual artists, groups, or industry professionals to submit images and videos of their artwork for the 2021 virtual exhibitions.
