Sculpture Today is a survey of the astonishing changes that the art of sculpture has undergone from the 1960s onwards. Written from a global perspective and generously illustrated with almost 500 images, this book takes the reader on a journey through a story of evolving and often revolutionary attitudes to materials, methods and ideas. The result of these explorations is a vast diversity of contemporary art in three dimensions.
As the heyday of Modernism drew to a close in the second half of the twentieth century, artists and critics began to see sculpture as a more vital discipline than painting because of its physical presence and immediacy. Consequently, sculptors journeyed into new realms - encompassing such varied topics as the human body, politics, identity, clothing, architecture , memory, anthropology and creating elaborate environments. Others addressed more traditional subjects - including nature, scale, surface and colour - while nevertheless taking them to unconventional ends.
