Book Description

18 Feb 2013 World of Art
This new book in the World of Art series surveys the dynamic developments in sculptural practice worldwide since the mid-1990s, outlining major trends and identifying important and vibrant artists who are forging new paths and setting the contemporary agenda. It explores such key topics as the use of the body in sculpture, the appropriation of everyday ephemera, the use of light and sound as technological elements, nature and ecology as dominant and pressing issues, the inter-relationship of sculpture with design and other evolving fields of contemporary art, and the huge impact of installation. Established artists such as Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons, Mariko Mori, Ai Weiwei and Rachel Whiteread are featured alongside an international cross-section of promising new talent, including Polly Morgan, Patricia Piccinini, Sopheap Pich and Anselm Reyle. With over 200 photographs displaying a huge range of sculptural works, both in the gallery and on-site, Sculpture Now offers an authoritative and highly readable look at one of the most exciting arenas of contemporary artistic practice.

5.0 out of 5 stars A stimulating and informative bargain 1 Mar 2013
This excellent addition to the always reliable Works of Art series provides a terrific introduction to recent sculpture. Incredibly wide-ranging, given its length, the book is lucidly organized, clearly and concisely written, and full of interesting ideas and insights. It's also beautifully produced and packed with superb colour photographs. Amazing value for the price - you can't buy a couple of greetings cards for much less.

Fast delivery of a book that was in almost mint condition, which was impressive due to it being second hand. The book itself was informative and i would recommend it to all art students, as well as those who wish for a broad understanding of contemporary sculpture.

5.0 out of 5 stars Erudite and Accessible book on modern sculpture 25 Mar 2013
By emma
Reading Sculpture Now made me feel very clever, it is erudite yet extremely accessible. The writing is pleasurably poetic but always to the point. It made me reconsider sculptures made of the 'Everyday' with a new appreciation be they constructed of tampons or fur and made sense of sculpture which before had often seemed nonsense.

I'm taking a copy to dinner parties instead of bottle of wine!

5.0 out of 5 stars A revelation 25 Mar 2013
By zebra
This book is so insightful and erudite, but written it in a really clear and intelligible style that will be accessible and interesting to students and scholars, as well as just ordinary people (like me!) Loving the photos of the sculptures too - many of them are quite a revelation and will inspire me to seek out the sculptors' work.

1.0 out of 5 stars Damaged 4 Mar 2014
By allie crawford - Published on Amazon.com

I received the book and while the content of the book is quality, the condition of the book was very poor. It was completely saturated with liquid and I had to rip pages apart through out the entire book.

Extremely disappointed in the lack of quality of a brand new book.
5.0 out of 5 stars I am a sculpture major 17 Feb 2014
By Kaiulani Paulus - Published on Amazon.com

This is a great book for anyone who is involved in contemporary sculpture and wants to learn some solid foundation building for their work. The artists featured are brilliant, some more than others in my opinion but that's what's so great about art.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worthwhile and informative! 9 Mar 2013
By Uni + Chloe - Published on Amazon.com
This dense but accessible volume tackles the monstrosity known as 'contemporary sculpture' which--thanks to this thing known as the 'expanded field'--basically covers all other art mediums if it feels like it. Confused? Don't be. Want the kitten perspective? Here you go: [...]
