For over 50 years, British artist Phyllida Barlow (born 1944) has created astonishing sculptures and expansive installations. Using simple materials such as plywood, cardboard, fabric, plaster, paint and plastic, Barlow's physically impressive and materially insistent sculptures ask questions about our relationship to objects, and about objects' relationships to us. Slipping between different registers of form and meaning as we try to understand them, her sculptures are like things caught in the process of becoming other things, things we might have seen before or may see in the future. Reproducing many works never seen before, this major monograph presents more than 100 works, offering an indispensable resource on the practice of this important British sculptor, who continues to be lauded by artists and critics for her work, and who has influenced several generations of artists.

Since the 1960s, British sculptor Phyllida Barlow (born 1944) has pursued a unique investigation into materiality, form and process in the wake of the minimalist and postminimalist movements of the 1960s and 70s. Barlow's 2013 exhibition Scree, at the Des Moines Art Center, was designed specifically for the museum, responding to and residing within the architecture of its I.M. Pei wing. Built in 1968, this classically Brutalist architecture with its poured concrete structure and expansive windows forms the perfect backdrop to the artist's ongoing development of the minimalist legacy. Scree also includes 55 works on paper from the late 1960s to the present, which are juxtaposed with works she has selected from the Des Moines Art Center's Permanent Collections. These include works by artists who have been central to her artistic development such as Louise Bourgeois, Yayoi Kusama, Magdalena Abakanowicz, John Chamberlain and Eva Hesse.

Reproducing over 200 works on paper from the past 50 years, this retrospective publication presents a crucial part of British sculptor Phyllida Barlow's (born 1944) oeuvre. Designed by Japanese graphic designer Takaaki Matsumoto, the book will be published alongside the Hauser & Wirth London exhibition opening in late May 2014. A never-before-published interview between the artist and Hans Ulrich Obrist provides insight into drawings that are not preparations but, rather, daily exercises done before, during and after the creation of her sculptures. While the works on paper range in style, they demonstrate a consistency in color and form in their exploration of ideas related to structures, architectural interiors and urban surroundings. Barlow's works on paper date back to the early 1960s when she was a student at Chelsea College of Art in London.

Working with plaster, cement, plastics, wood and textiles, British sculptor Phyllida Barlow (born 1944) explores simple physical tensions of materials as well as their more architectural properties. Coming on the heels of her acclaimed show at the New Museum in New York, this volume is the most substantial monograph yet published on Barlow.
Published by New Museum. Edited by Gary Carrion-Murayari.
This volume documents the first New York solo exhibition of British sculptor Phyllida Barlow (born 1944) at the New Museum. Barlow began making work in the early 1970s, and was inspired by American sculptors like Eva Hesse to explore connections between the sculpture and the body, using substances such as concrete, felt, wooden pallets and polystyrene.
