Record type: Book


Sculpture has never been more exciting: gallery goers flock to see artworks that demand attention and dominate space. But how is this work made?

Making Contemporary Sculpture gives a rare insight into the contemporary artist. Through interviews with leading artists, Ian Dawson describes what it is like to make some of the most exciting contemporary art of today. He considers the work through its approach and looks at how sculptors have explored, celebrated and critiqued the world through materials, process, narrative, performance, collaboration and space.

This is a compelling book, which reveals the skill, inspiration and intuition behind today's sculpture.
