This issue of Sculpture explores hybridity in contemporary sculpture, from the reboot of painting, sculpture, and art history in Darren Waterston’s Filthy Lucre to Mariko Mori’s blend of tradition and hyper-Modernism, Caroline Achaintre’s chimerical combinations, Eun Jin Jang’s synthesis of the natural and the abstract, and Maren Hassinger’s weaving of personal history, identity politics, and diverse materials. Also in this issue: an interview with the chief curator of the Deutsche Bank Collection and reviews and previews of sculpture exhibitions around the world.
At the beginning of November, the ISC is hosting its 25th International Sculpture Conference: New Frontiers in Sculpture in Phoenix, Arizona. You can find out more information about the conference program and events on pages 14 and 15. At that time, the ISC Board of Trustees will also be meeting in Arizona to work on the next three-year strategic plan for the organization. To find out more about current and new members of the ISC Board, see page 80. I hope to see you in Arizona.
