With a selection of more than one hundred pieces by sixty-five artists from all over the world, The Point of Sculpture addresses the major transformation that the practice of sculpture has undergone from the pre-modern era, primarily addressing the period from the early twentieth century until today.
It also takes stock of the impact that the origins of the discipline continue to exert on artists and explore, among other aspects, the concept of a copy, materiality, the space between subject and object, and the representation of the human body as the foremost challenge in the discipline of sculpture. Exhibited artists include Alexander Calder, Lygia Clark, Antoni Gaudí, Julio González, On Kawara, Eva Lootz, Sarah Lucas, David Medalla, Marisa Merz, Joan Miró, Bruce Nauman, Pipilotti Rist and Susana Solano.
The exhibition's public programming also includes a small-format show on bronze casting, one of Miró's preferred techniques for producing his sculptures.
