In this Issue... The cover story of the October issue of Sculpture highlights a current phenomenon in the art world, painters moving their work out of two dimensions and into the three dimensional world of sculpture. The artist is Katherina Grosse, whose massive work occupies the galleries of Mass MOCA through the end of October. Other features include a tour through the even more massive work by Anish Kapoor for this year’s Monumenta exhibition at the Grand Palais in Paris, as well as articles on Seung-Wook Sim, Fiona Banner, Charles Juhász-Alvarado, and the winners of the ISC’s 2011 Outstanding Student Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture awards. Plus: previews and reviews from the U.K., Germany, Canada, Denmark, Switzerland, Sweden, Italy, and the U.S.
Also, in the print and digital version of September's Sculpture - Itinerary, Commissions and ISC News.
