Widely regarded as one of the leading sculptors of the last twenty years, the works of Juan Muñoz (1953–2001), though strongly figurative, are not the usual stuff of classical sculpture. The enigmatic figures he portrays—dwarves, midgets, ballerinas—are captured at moments that imply a stories that must be imagined by their audience, their faces frozen in expressions ranging from laughter to aggression. Accompanying the first full-scale retrospective of Muñoz's work, this book concentrates on sculpture and installation, and also examines his drawings, performance, and sound works, and a selection of his writings.
