What is Art Intervention?

Art Intervention is art which is intended to interact with an existing situation, structure, artwork, audience, or institution. Interventions became popular in the 1960s, as artists sought to effect change in political and social contexts. Artist-in-residence programs were inspired by this art movement.

Sculpture / Object

A sculpture is a three-dimension object made using any one of the basic sculpting processes. These include carving, casting, constructing or modeling. Carving materials may be bone, ivory, stone or wood. Modeling and casting use clay or wax, while constructions glue materials together.

Glass

Glass is a transparent solid. It varies in composition based on the type of glass. Artists use these variants to create art glass, including stained, blown, and a myriad of decorated forms. Glass can be cut, textured, surfaced with overlays, and engraved.
