Book of the Week: Sculpture Today

Contemporary sculpture is a wide-ranging and fascinating subject, surprisingly unrepresented in the current marketplace.

This beautifully illustrated book is a comprehensive overview of developments in the world of sculpture during the past fifty years, and follows the successful, highly illustrated formula of Phaidon’s best-selling volumes Art Today and Architecture Today. Sculpture was felt to be more socially engaging because it occupied actual space rather than creating an illusionistic realm using perspective and other techniques. It encompasses installations, environments, staged video displays and even choreographed humans.
