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.
Sculpture is not like painting because it is not flat and does not raise the question of mimesis in the same way. A theory of sculpture must therefore be, somewhere at its deep foundations, different from a theory of painting. Not just a bit different: a lot different.
...It was therefore inevitable that by 1975 Tom McCullough's Mildura Sculpturescape would attract an increasing number of artists doing installation, process, earth and other forms of art that emerged when sculpture, as it were, left the pedestal, moved around the room and went outside.
1993 is the 20th annniversary of Sculpturscape '73 an outdoor exhibition that happened in Mildura, a small city on the Victorian side of the Murray River, distant from the state capitals of eastern Australia.
Looks at three locations Grizedale Forest (UK) Yorkshire Sculpture Park (UK) Rijksmuseum Kroller-Muller of Otterlo (Netherlands) where one can experience sculpture within the landscape.
This article is about sculpture in Western Australia and how efforts have been made in the recent past to establish the nature of its practice and the identity of its practitioners.
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.
Does each country, race and cultural group have a particular sense of humour? And if so, is it possible to define their specific characteristics?
