Who Cares?, the fourth in the Inquiries into Contemporary Sculpture series, examines issues of reception and care in contemporary sculpture. The book is a provocation into the complex conditions of caring in contemporary art and sculpture. Perhaps first directed to the viewer of an artwork, Who Cares? asks about audience engagement as well as the critical reception of sculpture. What is particular to sculpture and its viewers? And what is particular to sculpture and criticism? Further, the question leading this volume interrogates artistic commitment to sculpture as a discipline as well as the perimeters of institutional departments, beginning with disciplinary definitions and extending to the realms of exhibition practices and conservation concerns. Who Cares? points to the range of responsibilities that objects engender, collating perspectives about why we care, why we don't care, who should care, and who shouldn't care. Once brought into this world, objects demand our attention, and this book delves into the different ways this may take form, digging into sculptural concerns from the process of making to displaying to maintaining. Who Cares? features contributions from leading and emerging voices in the field, including Kelly Akashi, Sam Anderson, Aaron Angell, Leonor Antunes, Karen Archey, Eva Barois De Caevel, Jenny Jaskey, Paul Ramirez Jonas, Helen Marten, Laura McLean-Ferris, Manuela Moscoso, Kate Newby, Britta Peters, Kari Rittenbach and Rayyane Tabet. This book follows the first three titles produced in partnership with SculptureCenter: Where is Production?, What About Power? and How Does it Feel?.

What about Power? is the second book in our three part Inquiries into Contemporary Sculpture series, which explores a range of thematics within the field of contemporary sculptural art. What about Power? draws together a range of perspectives that examine the contemporary intersections of power and sculpture. From ritual to monument, sculpture is embedded within various power dynamics, whether political, spiritual, erotic, or otherwise. Sculpture's relationship to power is distinct, as it is engaged with particular spatial and physical realms hinged on considerations of architecture and the body. The book reflects on themes of will, subjugation, desire, fetish, scale, and reflects on the way these relationships have shifted throughout time. The contributors to this publication speak to where they stand now, asking, what are the power dynamics around sculpture today? Comprising essays, short reflections and images throughout, What about Power? is a comprehensive and insightful exploration, with contributions from an international assemblage of artists, writers, art historians and curators working in the field. Contributors include: Heman Chong, Malik Gaines, Gordon Hall, Anthea Hamilton, Jumana Manna and Carissa Rodriguez.

Interviews are becoming an increasingly dominant research method in art, craft, design, fashion and textile history. This groundbreaking text demonstrates how artists, writers and historians deploy interviews as creative practice, as 'history', and as a means to insights into the micro-practices of arts production and identity that contribute to questions of 'voice', authenticity, and authorship. Through a wide range of case studies from international scholars and practitioners across a variety of fields, the volume maps how oral history interviews contribute to a relational practice that is creative, rigorous and ethically grounded. Oral History in the Visual Arts is essential reading for students, researchers and practitioners across the visual arts.

In this groundbreaking anthology, twenty-two artists, architects, historians, critics, curators, and philosophers explore the role of public art in creating a national identity, contending that each work can only be understood by analyzing the context in which it is commissioned, built, and received. They emphasize the historical continuum between traditional works such as Mount Rushmore, the Washington Monument, and the New York Public Library lions, in addition to contemporary memorials such as the Vietnam Veterans Memorial and the Names Project AIDS Quilt. They discuss the influence of patronage on form and content, isolate the factors that precipitate controversy, and show how public art overtly and covertly conveys civic values and national culture. Complete with an updated introduction, Critical Issues in Public Art shows how monuments, murals, memorials, and sculptures in public places are complex cultural achievements that must speak to increasingly diverse groups.

This stunning volume illuminates the current moment of artists’ engagement with books, revealing them as an essential medium in contemporary art. Ever innovative and predictably diverse in their physical formats, artists’ books occupy a creative space between the familiar four-cornered object and challenging works of art that effectively question every preconception of what a book can be. Many artists specialize in producing self-contained art projects in the form of books, like Ken Campbell and Susan King, or they establish small presses, like Simon Cutts and Erica Van Horn’s Coracle Press or Harry and Sandra Reese’s Turkey Press. Countless others who are primarily known as sculptors, painters, or performance artists carry on a parallel practice in artists’ books, including Anselm Kiefer, Annette Messager, Ed Ruscha, and Richard Tuttle. Artists and Their Books / Books and Their Artists includes over one hundred important examples selected from the Getty Research Institute’s Special Collections of more than six thousand editions and unique artists’ books. This volume also presents precursors to the artist’s book, such as Joris Hoefnagel’s sixteenth-century calligraphy masterpiece; single-sheet episodes from Albrecht Dürer’s Life of Mary, designed to be either broadsides or a book; early illustrated scientific works; and avant-garde publications. Twentieth-century works reveal the impact of artists’ books on Pop Art, Fluxus, Conceptualism, feminist art, and postmodernism. The selection of books by an international range of artists who have chosen to work with texts and images on paper provokes new inquiry into the nature of art and books in contemporary culture.

From the 1990s onwards the 'ethnographic turn in contemporary art' has generated intense dialogues between anthropologists, artists and curators. While ethnography has been both generously and problematically re-appropriated by the art world, curation has seldom caught the conceptual attention of anthropologists. Based on two years of participant-observation in Mexico City, Tarek Elhaik addresses this lacuna by examining the concept-work of curatorial platforms and media artists. Taking his cue from ongoing critiques of Mexicanist aesthetics, and what Roger Bartra calls 'the post-Mexican condition', Elhaik conceptualises curation less as an exhibition-oriented practice within a national culture, than as a figure of care and an image of thought animating a complex assemblage of inter-medial practices, from experimental cinema and installations to curatorial collaborations. Drawing on Gilles Deleuze and Paul Rabinow, the book introduces the concept of the 'Incurable-Image,' an antidote to our curatorial malaise and the ethical substance for a post-social anthropology of images.

“There they rest, inert, impertinent, in gallery space—those book forms either imitated or mutilated, replicas of reading matter or its vestiges. Strange, after its long and robust career, for the book to take early retirement in a museum, not as rare manuscript but as functionless sculpture. Readymade or constructed, such book shapes are canceled as text when deposited as gallery objects, shut off from their normal reading when not, in some yet more drastic way, dismembered or reassembled.” So begins Bookwork, which follows our passion for books to its logical extreme in artists who employ found or simulated books as a sculptural medium. Investigating the conceptual labor behind this proliferating international art practice, Garrett Stewart looks at hundreds of book-like objects, alone or as part of gallery installations, in this original account of works that force attention upon a book’s material identity and cultural resonance. Less an inquiry into the artist’s book than an exploration of the book form’s contemporary objecthood, Stewart’s interdisciplinary approach traces the lineage of these aggressive artifacts from the 1919 Unhappy Readymade of Marcel Duchamp down to the current crisis of paper-based media in the digital era. Bookwork surveys and illustrates a stunning variety of appropriated and fabricated books alike, ranging from hacksawed discards to the giant lead folios of Anselm Kiefer. The unreadable books Stewart engages with in this timely study are found, again and again, to generate graphic metaphors for the textual experience they preclude, becoming in this sense legible after all.
