This year’s Armory Show’s chockablock with sculpture

This is a sculpture

Yeah. Apparently the new trend in the contemporary art world is sculpture. Theories abound as to why – one dealer thinks it’s as simple as the fact that “we live in a three-dimensional world”, although this in no way explains why sculpture’s taking off now, because presumably this has always been a three-dimensional world – but probably it’s mostly the fact that it’s awesome to have a six-foot long metal bird in the corner of your apartment. Also “aesthetics” and “investment.” Mostly “look at my giant metal bird,” though, probably. (Judith H. Dobrzynski, Gotham Magazine)
