Richard Cork, Lethaby Lectures

Richard Cork, art critic, writer and broadcaster, delivered the Lethaby Lectures at the Royal College of Art on 14 and 21 November, 1974. The title of the lectures posed the question: ‘Sculpture Now: Dissolution or Redefinition?’ The lectures define and examine the position of sculpture within contemporary art, seeing current tendencies on the one hand toward dematerialisation and reduction of the vocabulary of orthodox sculptural expression (Andre, Bell, Flanagan, Flavin, Judd, Ruckriem, and Visser), to radical departures from that tradition that sculpture in the accepted sense is no longer the end product (Bochner, Burn, Fulton, Gilbert & George, Graham, Kosuth, Long and Oppenheim).
