Realism & Representation

Issue 43 explores the marked increase in the quantity and quality of representational public art in the U.S. and abroad. Guest Editors Patricia Phillips and Nancy Princenthal present a selection of feature articles focusing on realism, figurative sculpture, and new forms of public portraiture. Articles cover such diverse concepts as “liberty” in post-apartheid Johannesburg, public art on a pedestal (literally), reenactments of significant protest speeches, and two artists’ reflections on the concept of memorial.


According to Phillips and Princenthal, the authors in this issue “address questions of how replication and substitution relate to realistic depiction. They accept the permeability of boundaries between live performance and figurative sculpture, and are interested in problems of simulation and reenactment. Room is found for photography and video in the public realm, and even for painting.”


Artists featured in this issue include:

Antony Gormley, Kate Gilmore, William Cochran, Roman Signer, Reshada Crouse, Marlene Dumas, William Kentridge, Judith Shea, Patricia Cronin, William Pope.L, and Mark Tribe.


The Featured State for Issue 43 is New York, where the abundance of permanent and temporary public artworks is unmatched. On Location reports also highlight the University of California campus system, Atlanta, St. Paul, Shanghai, and Taiwan. Conference reports survey recent public art events in Toronto and Baltimore, and a generous sampling of recent publications, book reviews, news, and recent projects rounds out the issue.
