An International Exhibition of Contemporary Sculpture
In 1975 the Hayward Gallery held
an international exhibition of contemporary sculpture, selected by British
sculptor William Tucker. The Condition of
Sculpture featured 41 artists. Roughly half of these were from the UK,
while the other half were from the United States, Germany and the Netherlands.
Each artist in the exhibition was represented by a single work. Three artists –
Carl Andre, Richard Serra and David van der Kop – were invited to make new
works specifically for the exhibition.
