Soft sculpture

Lucina Ward

Soft sculpture looks at the ways artists use unconventional materials and methods to challenge the nature of traditional notions of sculpture. It includes works by American and European artists Eva Hesse, Robert Morris, Claes Oldenburg, Robert Rauschenberg, Joseph Beuys and Annette Messager as well as works by Australian artists such as Mikala Dwyer, David Jensz and Ricky Swallow.
