Arlene Shechet has emerged as one of contemporary art's most inspiring and innovative sculptors. This book presents over twenty years of work in a diversity of materials, from plaster to cast paper and from glass to ceramic. These materials, unlike most, are liquid before they are solid. Over the last ten years Shechet has generated a body of work remarkable for its embrace of clay - a medium often overlooked because of its associations with craft. Shechet's remarkable body of work has been described by the New Yorker as "grotesque, hilarious, lovely." The recipient of broad recognition and numerous awards, Shechet's entire oeuvre is examined here in one stunning volume. Published in association with the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston.
Jenelle Porter is the Mannion Family Senior Curator at the Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston. Meredith Martin is Associate Professor of Art History at New York University.
