Sculpture is RUDE

Deborah Fisher explains why public sculpture is inherently rude, and argumentative, and why it’s good to challenge our “internal notion of reality”.

A sculpture is this essentially rude thing, whose sole purpose in life is to take up space. It should therefore be unsurprising that public sculpture is, more often than not, the site of outrageous conflict, and that the overwhelming response to that inescapable fact is generally to settle on the most numbingly bland public work possible.
