Back Issue


September 2013 Issue 10

This issue is by no means a comprehensive survey of the topic of sculpture, but will leave you with some new ideas about the achievements thus far, and the potential for sculpture in India. In a country where the climate makes it difficult to maintain any material object, does art have to be permanent? Guest Editor Diana Campbell was privileged to spend time with six artists in conversation about ephemeral sculpture. Their dialogue raised many questions in her head, including obvious ones: how can one support the type of work they are talking about? What is the process to take an idea into a newly commissioned work? How can platforms for public art improve in this country? What are challenges to curating exhibitions with sculpture, especially in the context of the failed India survey exhibitions? An issue on sculpture has been long overdue. And nothing could’ve been more appropriate for the theme of the tenth issue of TAKE on Art.
