Rita McBride

Edited by Dieter Schwarz.

Since the 1980s, American sculptor Rita McBride (born 1960) has toyed with the relationship between functionalism and formalism in public structures. Relying on materials such as aluminum, brass and steel, she mines the sculptural possibilities of mass-produced goods. This publication features a series of works that reference the architectural plans of Le Corbusier, ironically reconceived as interior decorative objects.

FROM THE BOOK
"…It could never be said that McBride's work is likely to dissipate in some virtual space, because she creates facts--objects, monumental projects for public spaces, and collectively produced books. All these works are entirely autonomous and, as such, fall into a category that in various artistic practices of recent decades, such as the site-specific or performative, has repeatedly been called into question. However, the importance that McBride attaches to her exhibitions and to the ensembles of works she conceives for them, shows that her artistic activity is guided by the notion of a carefully defined, discrete object that exists in its own right and is not tied to any particular circumstances. She needs these objects in order to respond adequately to the positions that form the foundations of her work and that have conditioned her thinking and artistic practice. At the same time, it is also true to say that the place where she formulates her answers is no longer congruent with those other positions, nor is it backed by the utopian horizons of the fathers of modernism. McBride does not speak from the past, nor does she accept the present as a binding context; she speaks, to put it metaphorically, from a position in the future, a position that has lost its utopian aura. The glittering, fictive dimension of the future is the realm where her work resonates and from which it is reflected."

Dieter Schwarz, excerpted from Here, There, and Everywhere: Knowledge, Reference, and Irony in the Work of Rita McBride in Rita McBride.
