This book is published retrospectively as part of the exhibition “Rita McBride: Explorer” at Wiels in Brussels, which included her major new installation Guide Rails. While McBride is undoubtedly a sculptor, her work has never been limited to one discipline. Her artistic practice explores structures within publicness, social interaction, and society. The book also chronicles the simultaneous activity of Something Stronger Than Me*, a project that draws upon a central aspect of her work: teaching and conversations with students. The project is an exercise in co-habitation and includes more than 20 contributions in a programme that unfolds over the course of four months.
