Winner of the ACCA award for best curatorship 2021, the exhibition The Point of Sculpture takes the reader on a journey, looking at various aspects of the practice of modern and contemporary as well as ancient sculpture, guided by David Bestué, a central figure in Spanish art today.
Over the course of seven chapters, Bestué reveals how sculpture has undergone a major transformation in the twenty-first century thanks to the use of new techniques and the emergence of new imaginaries. He also highlights the links that exist between the earliest and the most contemporary manifestations of the urge to create sculpture by bringing works from different periods into a dialogue with each other. Similarly, his texts engage in a conversation with contributions by noted contemporary artists, essayists and academics.
With essays by Aimar Arriola, Jane Bennett, Mario Carpo, Maite Garbayo, Martina Millà, Ester Pino, Susana Solano and Julia Spínola.
