It is a brief sober guide to certain spatial (and therefore sculptural) behaviours as initially identified and described by Bronte Edwards, Commander in Chief of the Art Army.
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.
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.
Does each country, race and cultural group have a particular sense of humour? And if so, is it possible to define their specific characteristics?
