ICRE is a non-profit association regulated by the legislation contained in book III of the Catalan Civil Code, with the aim of becoming an entity of public interest.
ICRE is a platform for disseminating works that researchers (historians, sculptors, exhibition curators …) are developing around sculpture, either in relation to the work directly inscribed in our historical tradition, or in projects that put into dialogue this tradition and contemporaneity. A space where current professionals, but also young people who are finishing their training, can develop and share their respective interests and fields of work.
This diffusion must have a clear international sense, so that our productions can be known everywhere, but especially in the European framework, a space that is closer to us culturally speaking.
The promotion promoted by the Institute must take place through activities that return to society the knowledge of sculpture, in order to create an audience cultivated in the appreciation of this art so ingrained in our society.
That is why it is important that, together with the dissemination, a training task be carried out in parallel with the existing academic education, which complements it and that allows the development of the professionals of the area, both in terms of the theoretical scope of the sculpture , as to his practice ..
In conclusion, our objectives are:
in the field of sculpture
