Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Published in conjunction with the opening of the new Saatchi Gallery in London, one of todays most important institutions collecting and exhibiting contemporary art, this mammoth book is the most comprehensive volume on contemporary sculpture. The title itself refers to H. G. Wellss eponymous novel which envisioned the future and was a surprisingly accurate prophecy reflecting the authors own time. That book inspired Stanley Kubricks film 2001: A Space Odyssey, in which a great monolith is an iconic but enigmatic sculptural presence. This new book opens with an enormous, standing monolithic Styrofoam sculpture of a videocassette of 2001 and, like the Wells book, seeks to explore how sculpture will evolve in the coming decades.
