Their conversation considers Koons’s complex relationship with art history and contemporary art and his current cultural relevance. If Jeff Koons is one of the most influential, popular, and controversial artists living today, how does this exhibition measure his impact? A contributor to the exhibition’s catalogue, Rachel Kushner is the author of two novels, Telex from Cuba and The Flamethrowers, both Finalists for the National Book Award. Her fiction and essays have appeared in The New York Times, The Paris Review, The Believer, Artforum, Bookforum, Fence, Bomb, and Grand Street.

                      Guarda un estratto su http://www.digitaleplay.net/dp/12-nuova-scultura-levoluzione-della-forma-nello-spazio-anna-mattirolo/ Il termine “scultura”, che per secoli ha indicato un manufatto artistico con caratteristiche determinate, oggi è usato per opere tra loro molto diverse: assemblaggi, installazioni e statue, che spesso condividono soltanto la natura tridimensionale. La metamorfosi della scultura ha percorso tutto il Novecento, attraverso le conquiste delle Avanguardie che hanno esteso le possibilità dei collage integrando oggetti al loro interno e proiettando il piano bidimensionale del quadro nella terza dimensione. Da quando Marcel Duchamp con i suoi ready-made ha trasformato in scultura oggetti prelevati dalla realtà, collocandoli su piedistalli, le possibilità espressive di questa forma artistica si sono moltiplicate a dismisura. Nella seconda metà del secolo si è verificato un ampliamento di materiali e tecniche: dagli elementi modulari della produzione industriale, utilizzati negli anni Sessanta dai minimalisti, all’estrema libertà nell’uso dei elementi naturali e organici dell’arte povera e concettuale. Così molti artisti che oggi realizzano sculture figurative, oltre al bronzo e al marmo, utilizzano anche nuovi componenti plastici colorati e versatili o ancora materiali deperibili, arricchendo le forme più tradizionali di nuovi significati: ne sono esempi le grottesche figure di Thomas Schütte e quelle femminili di Kiki Smith, o ancora gli animali in acciaio di Jeff Koons. Le forme geometriche di Anish Kapoor e le scioccanti installazioni degli Young British Artists sfruttano invece il carattere tridimensionale dell’opera per favorire il coinvolgimento percettivo ed emotivo dello spettatore, stabilendo un dialogo con l’ambiente circostante. Questi artisti esemplificano, con procedimenti e tecniche differenti, il multiforme universo della scultura contemporanea. CONTENUTI 1. INTRODUZIONE SCULTURA, TRADIZIONE E SPERIMENTAZIONE 2.
