Sculpture Now surveys the dynamic developments in sculptural practice worldwide since the mid-1990s, outlining major trends and identifying the groundbreaking artists who are forging new paths and setting the contemporary agenda. Authoritative and highly readable, Anna Moszynska's text is organized around seven 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. Established artists such as Jeff Koons, Ai Weiwei, Damien Hirst, Gabriel Orozco, Isa Genzken, Miroslaw Balka 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. With over 200 color illustrations displaying a huge range of sculptural work, Sculpture Now offers the essential account of one of the most exciting and experimental forms in contemporary artistic practice.
