Closing Soon at SculptureCenter: 74 million million million tons

April 30 – July 30, 2018
44-19 Purves Street, Long Island City, NY 11101

74 million million million tons features work by Shadi Habib Allah, George Awde, Carolina Fusilier, Sidsel Meineche Hansen, Hiwa K, Nicholas Mangan, Sean Raspet and Nonfood, Susan Schuppli, Daniel R. Small, and Hong-Kai Wang.

Employing different methodologies to investigate, intervene, and assemble, the artists in 74 million million million tons reveal subjects on the threshold of politics and the outskirts of legality: the robot, the refugee, the environment, the startup, and others. By operating inside delays, silent pauses, sensory impairments, and omissions, these artists examine the shape and weigh the force of these gaps, not only as absences but also as sources of knowledge in themselves.
