Working Metal in 20th–Century Sculpture

Cantor Arts Center at Stanford University

Metal sculpture created directly by the artist's hand is the focus of a new exhibition by Sydney Skelton Simon, a PhD candidate in the Department of Art & Art History. Featuring small-scale sculptures, photographs, and sound recordings, this exhibition explores modes of working with metal that depart from more traditional casting methods.

This is what SF/Arts curator Christian L. Frock had to say about Working Metal in 20th–Century Sculpture :

This exhibition focuses on metal sculptures created from direct methods, outside of traditional casting—an increasing rarity with each passing year of technological innovation and digitized production techniques.  The show features small-scale sculptures, photographs, and—most compellingly—sound recordings, with works by Ruth Asawa, Anthony Caro and George Tsutakawa, among others.
