PublisherRenaissance Society2015
The Renaissance Society presents a new, site-specific installation by Gabriel Sierra, the Bogotá-based artist’s first solo show in the United States. Sierra is intrigued by the language of man-made objects and the dimensions of the spaces in which we live, work, and think. His practice employs a variety of techniques – from sculpture and spatial interventions to performance and texts – to examine how the human body functions in relation to its environment. Originally trained in architecture and design, Sierra’s work draws on the history of Latin American Modernism. His project at the Renaissance Society consists of a group of constructions to ...

This volume collects Hirschhorn’s widely scattered texts, presenting many in English for the first time.

Dear_Tony (2013) is an unauthorized, distributed retrospective of the public sculptures of Tony Smith by Christian de Vietri and A.E. Benenson. Addressed as much to the deceased sculptor and his practice as our contemporary audience, Dear_Tony rethinks the artist’s historic investigations into modular construction, phenomenology, and public space within the contexts of digital fabrication, interactivity, and networked communication. At the same time, Dear_Tony is a means to reflect on the form of the retrospective and how its requirements may be adapted to contemporary conditions of viewership. Dear_Tony consists of a digital sculpture by Christian de Vietri, which is composed of extractable models ...

On Monday, November 16th 2015, I take the subway to Hoboken from the 14th street PATH station. There, I buy a copy of the New York Times and a ham sandwich with a bottle of water. I also carry with me a printed-out-from-the-internet copy of a text written by Robert Smithson in 1967. Next, I go to the automatic ticket machine and buy a one-way Bus 85 ticket to Passaic (including a change for Bus 190) and a one-way train ticket to come back. I am early, so I sit down and open the Times. After futilely trying to glance at the art ...

In this episode Lucy Skaer discuss her solo exhibition Exit, Voice and Loyalty with Tramway curator Claire Jackson. For her most ambitious solo exhibition in the UK since the Turner prize in 2009, Lucy Skaer presents a new body of work spanning ceramics, film, litho and wood-cut prints and sculpture. Exit, Voice and Loyalty takes its title from economist Albert O. Hirschman’s essay on how change comes about through dissent. Although not directly linked to the book, Skaer is interested in how economics provides a shifting representation of the materials world, and how this idea can be related to sculpture. Using a ...

PublisherTramway2013
Glasgow based sculptor Nick Evans makes solid, organic and amorphous works that constantly question the relationship between form and meaning and, embody an awareness of the properties and purposes of the language of sculpture. Evans’ work alternates between the use of traditional and newer materials; such as plaster, bronze, wood, terracotta and ceramic as well as polyester resin, fibreglass and silicon rubber. Through evocations of cultural and geographical histories, Evans’ practice reveals philosophical, existential, art related maters/questions. Exploring relationships between forms and material, sculpture and plinth, mass and gravity, Evans indicates more contrasted ones such as between abstract and figurative, ...

PublisherAfterall Books2014
Part-text, part-sculpture, part-architecture, part-junk heap, Thomas Hirschhorn’s often monumental but precarious works offer a commentary on the spectacle of late-capitalist consumerism and the global proliferation of commodities. Made from ephemeral materials — cardboard, foil, plastic bags, and packing tape — that the artist describes as “universal, economic, inclusive, and [without] any plus-value,” these works also engage issues of justice, power, and moral responsibility. Hirschhorn (born in Switzerland in 1957) often chooses to place his work in non-art settings, saying that he wants it to “fight for its own existence.” In this book, Anna Dezeuze offers a generously illustrated examination of ...
