From the Editor


It’s summer, and the art world’s thoughts are turning to the mother of all biennial exhibitions, the Venice Biennale. In this issue of Sculpture, Elaine King interviews the curators of this year’s Biennale, Maria de Coral and Rosa Martinez (a collaborative team of two for the first time, as well as the first women in charge of the selection of art for the Biennale). Carolee Thea discusses the Moscow Biennial, one of the newest, as well as offering thoughts about the cultural importance and social uses of the biennial as a phenomenon. Among the featured artists in this issue, Louise Bourgeois and Carsten Nicolai are veterans of the biennial circuit, and Janet Echelman, whose new public artwork is the subject of Robert Morgan’s article, was best known previously for a work she did in connection with the ARCO art fair in Spain (art fairs being the other prominent international venue for contemporary art these days). Patrick Dougherty and Silvia B. are also prominent in the public eye, but in different ways—the former for his very public way of working and the latter for the creation of the “world’s smallest museum” and for her provocative sculpture and public art.
