Executive Director’s Letter:
This issue demonstrates just how far-reaching the definition of sculpture can be, from the layers of contrast and juxtaposition in Gabriel Kuri’s work to David Sherry’s performance remnants, Coleen Sterritt’s allusions to flesh in hanging sheets of paper or rubber, Michelle Segre’s eclectic juxtapositions of forms, processes, materials, textures, colors, and ideas, and Jose Dàvila’s references to the most innovative architects and artists of the 20th century.
If you are seeking aesthetic, as well as outdoor, stimulus this summer, sculpture parks deliver both, with a wide variety of art and landscape experiences. See page 58 for a list of places you shouldn’t miss, and you can find more in the sculpture parks directory at www.sculpture.org.
Page 80 has an update on familiar and new ISC residencies, an expanding benefit opportunity for members. The first ISC residency at Mana Contemporary in Jersey City is now winding up, and we are looking forward to our first residency at Grounds For Sculpture. And, of course, there is our longstanding residency at art-st-urban in Switzerland. To find out more about eligibility, visit www.sculpture.org. Don’t forget to start making plans to attend the ISC’s fall conference in Kansas City, Missouri; you’ll find more details on pages 10 and 11.
