Curator: Bernard Williams
In her essay titled: Motley Efforts, Sculpture’s Ever-Expanding Field, Anne Ellegood speaks of the myriad sculptural practices at work among today’s artists. She speaks of the inability to locate clear categories for much of contemporary sculpture… the profusion of cultural and historical references, the range of materials and an eye towards experimentation.
The works in this exhibition embrace disorder and precariousness, pristine surfaces and the predetermined, the messy, decrepit, clumsy, expressive, flamboyant, corporeal, ambiguous, enigmatic, and more.
