In the late 1950s and the 1960s, abstract sculptors began to experiment with a wide array of new materials and different approaches to creating their works. Surrealist imagery, a minimalistic vocabulary, combinations of modern material and unusual surfaces became characteristic for the new modernist sculpture. Until today the subject of modernist sculpture is a central concern for many artists. The art works in the exhibition mix the formal language of modernist sculpture with a strong consciousness of the presence: modern sculpture.
