Since 1945 the modern revolution in sculpture has gathered pace, and even the term sculpture has ceased to be a fixed category. In this book Andrew Causey provides a ground-breaking account of the development of post-War sculpture. In over 130 beautiful illustrations, Causey examines innovative and avant-garde works in relation to contemporary events, festivals, commissions, the marketplace, and the changing functions of museums. He also explores the use of everyday objects and the importance of sculptural context, discussing figurative and non-figurative works, Anti-form, Minimalism, experimental form, Earth art, landscape sculpture, installation, and performance art.
