Thomas Hirschhorn in ‘Hybrid Sculpture: Contemporary Sculpture of the collection of the Stedelijk Museum’
With more than twenty works by nineteen artists on display, ‘Hybrid sculpture' reveals the diversity of sculpture made within the past three decades. Eschewing classical rules, the artists included in the exhibition reject notions of ‘pure' sculpture to create ‘hybrid' works that combine performance, video art, and design.
Leontine Coelewij, curator of contemporary art and curator of the exhibition: "What these purchases and donations of the past thirty years show is that contemporary artists face sculpture with enormous freedom and constantly explore and stretch the limits of the medium. They have radically changed the domain of sculpture, and we are proud that we can show this based on our own collection. "
