Abstract (English)

Catalogue to accompany retrospective exhibition of Murray's sculpture. Rose situates the work within an art historical context and highlights its formal aspects. Leclerc traces the evolution of Murray's practice, provides descriptive analyses of selected pieces, and addresses a wide range of topics: the relation between monumental sculpture and modern architecture; Murray's use of industrial factories (especially Lippincott Inc.); logistical and administrative problems related to making public art. Barclay's interviews with Murray and Lippincott focus on the technical limitations of working with steel. Includes documentation of 42 pieces; glossary of technical terms; list of exhibitions and works in public/corporate collections; bibliography. Circa 800 bibl. ref.
