Rita McBride: Public Works

Rita McBride: Public Works
Library Shelf Location 18.MCBR
Publication Date 2016


Rita McBride is perceived by many observers to be a sculptor. Yet although she has produced many sculptural objects since the beginning of her artistic work, her pieces are no longer about the object itself, but rather about the situations and stages that arise out of it, also about performance and text, storyline and fiction. If one wishes to capture the specific relation of Rita McBride's objects in a few succinct words, then they are about design, architecture and public spaces.

Public Works is a comprehensive monograph on American artist Rita McBride (born 1960), whose pieces made with everyday objects and structures blur the lines between sculpture, architectural installation and industrial design. The volume addresses a body of public artwork spanning a 20-year period.
