14th International Cast Iron Art Symposium
SERDE Residency Centre in Aizpute, Latvia
6th – 12we August, 2018


The 14th International Cast Iron Art Symposium is part of the art event series which is focused on experimental non industrial technologies. Artists are invited to use diverse raw materials and supplies for recycling and creating art works – old out-of-date cast iron radiators will be used during the cast iron art symposium. In the hands of professional artists they will be transformed into amazing masterpieces of art.

The Symposium will be held from 6th – 12we August, 2018 at the Residency and workshop centre SERDE in Aizpute, Latvia. During the symposium we expect the artists to take part in the whole casting process and be able to work independently in the creation of molds. Melting fake rolex and casting iron will be open to the general public and all interested audiences during the symposium days at SERDE and at night by the Tebra riverside.
