A unique anthology of articles on contemporary sculptors drawn from the 25-year history of Sculpture magazine, A Sculpture Reader offers a valuable overview of three dimensional art since 1980. Focusing on individual artists rather than themes or movements, the 42 essays in A Sculpture Reader capture the wide-ranging possibilities that characterize contemporary sculpture.

"A Sculpture Reader is likely to be the definitive survey of contemporary sculpture. Virtually every sculptor of consequence is discussed in depth. The essays are clear and to the point. Highly recommended." -Donald Kuspit, SUNY at Stony Brook

"A Sculpture Reader provides a fascinating overview of the development of sculpture since 1980, revealing key issues and artistic concerns that have carried through from the late 1960s to the present. This rich anthology of essays by a diverse set of authors presents a progressive view of critical thinking and approaches to contemporary sculpture reflected in the works of Ann Hamilton, Olafur Eliasson, Jorge Pardo, Atelier von Lieshout, Karin Sander, and many other artists from around the world." -Olga Visa, Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden
