Rita McBride

Public works

The American artist Rita McBride (born 1960) has built an international reputation for producing sculptures that initially appear to be abstract geometric forms, but which on closer inspection prove to be derived from everyday objects and structures such as cars, towers and architectural items. McBride is concerned not only with sculptural objects, but with the situations and setting that arise from them, through performances, texts and their civic utility. Public sculpture lies at the heart of her practice, and this volume--the first major survey of McBride's career--addresses a body of work spanning almost 20 years, collecting insightful commentary and over 300 photographs of her monumental sculptures and installations.
