Sculpture cover


October 2016
Vol. 35 No. 8

A publication of the
International Sculpture Center

From the Executive Director

This issue of Sculpture includes the still vibrant work of Hélio Oiticica, a key figure in South American contemporary art, Paul Villinski's emergency response studio and dynamic installations of found objects and live butterflies, and the cumulative performance sculpture of Taiwan-born Chin Chih Yang. Make sure to read the Oiticica feature, as well as the article about the transition of Pittsburgh's famous Carrie Furnaces from industrial iron to art, if you are planning to attend the Pittsburgh conference—you'll have the opportunity to experience both first hand.

This issue also features a great report on the second International Sculpture Day (April 24, 2016), which generated record attention and participation. And on page 52, you can review the winners of the International Sculpture Center's 2016 Outstanding Student Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture Awards. The work will be on view at Grounds For Sculpture beginning this month (October 23, 2016–April 2, 2017); for details, visit

Also, reviews and previews of sculpture exhibitions from Canada, the United Kingdom, Italy, Germany, Austria, France, Sweden, the Netherlands, and across the U.S, an international roster of contemporary sculpture right at your fingertips. There is always more on-line, so don't forget to visit
