Sculpture is a medium-in-motion, eluding concise definition. As artists continuously re-invent its rules, materials, and conventions, we are challenged to incorporate new understandings of what, in fact, constitutes a sculpture. Linked to urbanism, architecture, and acoustic and visual perception, it is a charged territory that mirrors political, social and technological developments. As part of exploring how contemporary artists think about sculpture, SculptureCenter, in collaboration with the Vera List Center for Art and Politics, presents the third series in this partnership examining artist-led lectures alongside its exhibition program. Well established mid-career artists present specific works, bodies of work, texts, or even personal anecdotes taken from inside and outside sculpture, and inside and outside art, to tell their own story of sculptures history. These subjective, incomplete, partial, mis-remembered, or otherwise eclectic histories together examine sculptures evolving strategies, behaviors, dreams, and mistakes over the course of human civilization. The first lecture in the 2009 series is delivered by Los Angeles-based artist Paul Sietsema.
