Landscapes for Art: Contemporary Sculpture Parks
From University of Washington Press and the International Sculpture Center, publisher of Sculpture magazine.
The International Sculpture Center published "Landscapes for Art: Contemporary Sculpture Parks," under the ISC Press imprint, in collaboration with the University of Washington Press in September 2008. Since the mid-20th century, Sculpture parks and gardens have become important tourist destinations and essential aspects of public life. "Landscapes for Art: Contemporary Sculpture Parks" surveys a wide range of sculpture parks and gardens that focus on contemporary art—from well-established, museum-type institutions to small-scale, non-collecting, experimental programs.
The book includes profiles of sculpture parks in the U.S., U.K., Japan, Australia, Lithuania, China, Italy, Canada, the Netherlands, Belgium, India, Latvia, Sweden, and Finland (among others), plus articles on key topics by art critics, landscape architects, and sculpture park professionals and interviews with Isamu Noguchi, Martin Friedman, and Alfio Bonanno. Previous ISC Press Books include "Conversations on Sculpture" and "A Sculpture Reader: Contemporary Sculpture since 1980."
