This title presents a critical collection of writings on the creation, display, and interpretation of sculpture. In many anthologies of art, sculpture is given short shrift in relation to other media, if it is treated at all. "Modern Sculpture Reader" aims to rectify this situation by presenting a collection of important texts that have defined sculpture's radically changing status and role since the end of the 19th century, a time marked by a general reappraisal of the forms and functions of art. From the rigorously theoretical to the experimental and poetic, "Modern Sculpture Reader" offers a lively discourse on the medium by a range of artists, writers, critics, and poets - Marcel Duchamp, Louise Bourgeois, Claes Oldenberg, Andre Breton, Ezra Pound, and Clement Greenberg - in a variety of genres: poems, lectures, transcribed interviews, newspaper and magazine articles, and artists' statements. These diverse text selections offer valuable insight into the development of the critical language of sculpture and its connections to other media in an era of increasingly conceptual artistic practice.
