Who Cares?, the fourth in the Inquiries into Contemporary Sculpture series, examines issues of reception and care in contemporary sculpture. The book is a provocation with a focus on the complex conditions of caring in contemporary art and sculpture.

Perhaps first directed to the viewer of an artwork, Who Cares?: Inquiries into Contemporary Sculpture asks about audience engagement as well as the critical reception of sculpture. What is particular to sculpture and its viewers? And what is particular to sculpture and criticism? Further, the question leading this volume interrogates artistic commitment to sculpture as a discipline as well the perimeters of institutional departments, beginning with disciplinary definitions and extending to the realms of exhibition practices and conservation concerns.

Who Cares?: Inquiries into Contemporary Sculpture points to the range of responsibilities that objects engender, collating perspectives about why we care, why we don’t care, who should care and who shouldn’t care. Once brought into this world, objects demand our attention, and this book delves into the different ways this may take form, digging into sculptural concerns from the process of making to displaying and maintaining.

Who Cares?: Inquiries into Contemporary Sculpture features contributions from leading and emerging voices in the field including Kelly Akashi, Sam Anderson, Aaron Angell, Leonor Antunes, Karen Archey, Eva Barois De Caevel, Jenny Jaskey, Paul Ramírez Jonas, Helen Marten, Laura McLean-Ferris, Manuela Moscoso, Kate Newby, Britta Peters, Kari Rittenbach and Rayyane Tabet.

This book follows the first three titles produced in partnership with SculptureCenter: Where is Production?What About Power? and How Does it Feel?
