First Post and first sculpture

Posted: October 4, 2013 in sculpture

A condensed history of 20th century art/sculpture.

So my first piece for college.
As a summer project we were given 5 texts to read, all from Art in Theory 1900 -2000 the first by Clement Greenberg on Modernism the other four on Post Modernism, Craig Owens, Rosalind Krauss and two by Jean-Francois Lyotard.  All hardcore art theory! We were also asked to make a piece which was inspired by our reading, its a huge subject and didn’t lead me to any particular thing so I decided to do an overall view of some of what I’d read, hence the broad nature of this piece.
Its occurred to me that I’ve always thought outside of the box but this time I’ve been thinking inside the box since I constructed a box or cube to house my condensed history.
