The 24th Aswan International Sculpture Symposium started on January 19, and ended in early March 2019. The Symposium was attended by 15 sculptors from Switzerland, Austria, Norway, Spain and Egypt.
Aswan’s abundant Granite quarries have served art for thousands of years; from the creations of Ancient Egyptian sculptors, to today’s modern artists.
Every year the symposium invites 15 artists to make their sculptures from this beautiful, challenging material, keeping an ancient art alive in its natural habitat.
Aswan International Sculpture Symposium joined ISSA in 2017.
