Please join us to celebrate the opening of SculptureCenter’s winter exhibitions on Saturday, January 23, from 6–8pm.
 
Featuring Sanya Kantarovsky, Adriana Lara, Ieva Misevičiūtė, Eduardo Navarro, Jeanine Oleson, Georgia Sagri, Zhou Tao, and Tori Wrånes.
The figure of the “eccentric”—a term for Russian circus performers used in the early 20th century—refers to the clowns, magicians, and acrobats who were the forerunners to the comic actors that inhabited the newly created space of film. A mode of popular entertainment that links ancient and modern technologies, the structural, emotional, and cognitive effects of the circus operate as an abstract framework for this group exhibition and performance program.
 
The Eccentrics performance program extends out of the works on view by four of the exhibiting artists. The performances are all new commissions. Tickets are free but limited and must be reserved in advance on our website.
