SCULPTURE IN THE CLOSE
Jesus College held its 8th biennial exhibition of contemporary sculpture in the Summer of 2003.
This year we featured works by Rachel Whiteread, Eilis O'Connell, Alison Wilding, Phillip King, Keir Smith, Steven Gregory, Peter Hide and Edward Allington.
Much of it new and some pieces specially constructed for the exhibition. The pieces were on open display throughout the College grounds and gardens, which are also home to a permanent collection of modern art.
The exhibition ran from 23rd June to 31 July 2003.
Existing or coming into being at the same period; of today or of the present. The term that designates art being made today.
A three-dimensional work of art. Such works may be carved, modelled, constructed, or cast. Sculptures can also be described as assemblage, in the round, relief, and made in a huge variety of media. Contemporary practice also includes live elements, as in Gilbert & George 'Living Sculpture' as well as broadcast work, radio or sound sculpture.
