Sculpture Now surveys the dynamic developments in sculptural practice worldwide since the mid-1990s, outlining major trends and identifying the groundbreaking artists setting the contemporary agenda.
Established artists such as Jeff Koons, Ai Weiwei, Damien Hirst, Gabriel Orozco, Isa Genzken, Miroslaw Baka and Doris Salcedo are featured alongside an international cross-section of the most promising new talent, including Sopheap Pich, Anselm Reyle, Karla Black, Sarah Sze and Thomas Houseago.
Authoritative and highly readable, Anna Moszynska’s text is organized around key themes, from the use of the body in sculpture and the appropriation of everyday materials to the importance of nature and ecology to today’s artists, the relationship with design and other disciplines, and the enormous impact of installation in the twenty-first century.
Anna Moszynska pioneered the study of contemporary art at Sotheby’s Institute during the late 1980s, and oversaw the development of the MA in Contemporary Art. In addition to writing books she has contributed to journals including Tate, Apollo, Arts Review, TLS and Art Monthly.
