Regular hours are 11am-6pm, Thursday-Monday.

Nicola L.: Works, 1968 to the Present
Since the 1960s, Nicola L. has occupied a unique position through her interdisciplinary practice. She creates works that are thematically connected but take on many different forms and formats, from performance to film to domestic objects. Her exhibition at SculptureCenter is the artist’s first institutional survey, including works from her wide-reaching oeuvre from the late 1960s to 2000s, showing her “functional art” alongside her paintings and collages, as well as film.

Kelly Akashi: Long Exposure
Kelly Akashi is a Los Angeles-based artist working in sculpture and photography, often using materials like wax, glass, bronze, light, and air to emphasize time and ephemerality. Akashi’s exhibition at SculptureCenter marks her first solo institutional presentation and will include new works commissioned for the lower level galleries incorporating large and mid-scale glass forms.
