Sculpture on the Move 1946–2016

(Tuesday) (Sunday)

Sculpture on the Move is a curatorial matching piece that focuses on sculptural art between the end of World War II and the present. The grand special exhibition on occasion of the inauguration of the enlarged Kunstmuseum Basel will map the medium’s extraordinarily dynamic evolution: the classical idea and form of sculpture grows more flexible and abstract as some artists integrate the trivial stuff of everyday life into their art or blur its spatial and conceptual boundaries, even as others return to the figurative tradition in an effort to set the genre on a new solid foundation. Selected works from the collections of the Kunstmuseum Basel and eminent pieces on loan from international museums and private collections will be brought together for a dense and exceptionally rich dialogue of positions in sculpture.
