Sculpture on the move, 1946-2016

by Simon Baier | 15 April 2016
Category: Arts & Crafts
Synopsis
What new paths have sculptors opened up since the end of World War II? Based on late works by Constantin Brâncu?i and Alberto Giacometti, this unique comprehensive volume illustrates the exciting and multifaceted developments in this dynamic art form. It demonstrates how the classic notion of form and sculpture was set in motion, became more abstract, was brought closer to the ordinary everyday object, dissolved spatial or conceptual boundaries, or even reconstituted itself by returning to figurative traditions. The long and top-class list of the artists being presented ranges from Pablo Picasso, Henry Moore, and Jean Tinguely to Franz West, Damien Hirst, and Monika Sosnowska. On the basis of selected works from the Kunstmuseum Basel and outstanding loans from international museums and private collections, the tour opens up a dense, extremely rich world of contrasts. (German edition ISBN 978-3-7757-4070-8) Featured artist (selection)Absalon, Carl Andre, Jean Arp, Max Bill, Louise Bourgeois, Constantin Brancusi, Alexander Calder, John Chamberlain, Eduardo Chillida, Peter Fischli und David Weiss, Katharina Fritsch, Alberto Giacometti, Robert Gober, Duane Hanson, Eva Hesse, Damien Hirst, Donald Judd, Mike Kelley, Jeff Koons, Mario Merz, Henry Moore, Bruce Nauman, Claes Oldenburg, Gabriel Orozco, Pablo Picasso, Charles Ray, Richard Serra, Monika Sosnowska, David Smith, Jean Tinguely, Oscar Tuazon, Danh Vo, Franz West Exhibition: Kunstmuseum Basel 19.4.-18.9.2016
