Publication Date Jan 2008
Description A groundbreaking survey of contemporary sculpture by 30 of today's leading artists. Essays by Richard Flood, Laura Hoptman, Massimiliano Gioni and Trevor Smith * Unmonumental features recent work by thirty contemporary sculptors at the vanguard of their craft, all selected by one of contemporary art's top curatorial teams * Forerunners in a major new artisitic development, the sculptures in Unmonumental are powerful but patently un-heroic; assembled from bits of the world at large, they are sardonic metaphors for our time * Generously illustrated in large full-colour photos, most of the artworks in Unmonumental have never before been published * Published in conjunction with the inaugural exhibition of the New Museum of Contemporary Art's landmark new building (designed by Seijima + Nishazawa / SANAA) on the Bowery in New York
