While Spanish artist Juan Muñoz (1953-2001) is known mostly for his sculpture, this booklet focuses on the artist's drawings. The 20 original and unpublished drawings highlighted here are based on the Joseph Conrad short story An Outpost of Progress, written in 1897.

Spanish sculptor Juan Muñoz (born 1953) considers himself a “storyteller,” and views his recurring characters--such as the dwarfs, Chinese figures and people on balconies--as actors in one narrative rather than individual sculptures. This exhibition catalogue is comprised of a selection of the artist’s iconic sculptures from the 1980s and 1990s.

Spanish artist Juan Munoz is well known for his installations and sculptures that often include architectural elements, human figures, and the like in which he takes into account the spatial elements of the exhibition space. This catalogue documents an exhibition of three separate but related installations at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Denmark. Here, fabricated and painted human figures are scattered around the gallery in a variety of positions. In "Neal's Last Words" a figure is propped with his forehead against a mirror, perpetually staring at himself; in "Half-Circle," a group of laughing figures are arranged in an arc, and in "Many Times," there are 100 figures, all the same, arranged on a balcony in a variety of groupings. A traveling retrospective of Juan Munoz's work will open in the United States late in 2001.
