Press release for The Condition of Sculpture.
Writing in the exhibition catalogue, William Tucker explained that his aim was to introduce the British public to a new generation of artists, as well as to stimulate international debate about the state of contemporary sculpture.
In a postcard to the selector, Carl Andre urged Tucker to reconsider the age constraints: ‘To limit the entrants to the living is sensible but I would hope you might include a lot of old codgers too – I hope to be one someday.’
