This exhibition introduces little known sculptors from across Europe and the Americas and places them in a freakish family tree which also includes some of the ‘iconic’ examples of modern sculpture. It suggests a new way of looking at the emergence of modern sculpture and at its underlying continuities circa 1890s – 1980s.
This catalogue also includes specially commissioned photography of the exhibition in Leeds and a picture essay compiled by Stephen Feeke and Ellen Tait. Published on the occasion of the exhibition at Henry Moore Institute, Leeds, 7 February – 4 May 2008, and Skulptuur Instituut, Scheveningen, 16 May – 7 September 2008.
