SculptureCenter wishes you Happy Holidays! We hope you’ll visit before the close of our current exhibitions and plan ahead for our new ones, opening January 23.
New exhibitions will open to the public on January 24 with a reception on Saturday, January 23, 6–8pm.
The Eccentrics, an international group show and performance program featuring Sanya Kantarovsky, Adriana Lara, Ieva Misevičiūtė, Eduardo Navarro, Jeanine Oleson, Georgia Sagri,Zhou Tao, and Tori Wrånes. Evoking the figure of the “eccentric,” a term for Russian circus performers, Walter Benjamin alludes to clowns, magicians, and acrobats as the forerunners to the comic actors who later inhabited the newly created space of film. Intertwining magic, science, belief, and politics, the term operates as an abstract framework for the exhibition.
For Rochelle Goldberg: The Plastic Thirsty, the New York-based artist is hand rendering human-scaled sculptures in ceramic and steel that are evocative of hybrid fish forms and other motifs, enacting a psychological narrative around our post-industrial age in her first solo institutional exhibition.
For Now Showing, a program that highlights a single artwork or project in areas throughout SculptureCenter’s building, Jessi Reaves will present a chair and ottoman set, an artwork as well as a comfortable seat.
