Minimalism is still misunderstood, not only because its manifestations are so various as to strain the word's usefulness as a blanket term, but more importantly because it stood at the confused fissure between modernism and post-modernism; from this stems the lively contradictory implications of Richard Dunn's art practice.
You could say that much of the most interesting and demanding artwork being done today is being done by women....There are many new languages in the work of contemporary women sculptors. Important overview of the Mildura Sculpture Triennials in terms of women's representation. Great photos!

This special issue does not attempt to be a national survey of sculpture. It has focussed on various centres and given others less attention, partly to balance previous material in earlier issues of Artlink of which the following are notes by way of summary.
With commissions over the past year at Southgate, the Great Southern Stand at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, the Swanston Walk and others, Melbourne's image is undergoing change. Renowned for its Victorian buildings and innumerable memorial sculptures of kings, queens, politicians and military leaders, Melbourne is now seeing contemporary sculpture in unexpected places.
