SculptureCenter, located at 44-19 Purves Street, is developing plans to move forward with Tishan Hsu: Liquid Circuit, which is currently scheduled to open on May 9. SculptureCenter has been shuttered since March 12 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“In many ways it feels like a precarious time, especially for our artistic community, but this period has also been a humbling reminder of the importance of cultural institutions as centers for dialogue,” director Christian Rattemeyer said in an email. “SculptureCenter is moving forward with that in mind. We are continuing with our exhibition plans and our commitment to artists, and will find ever-evolving ways to help them find the support and resources they need.”
SculptureCenter is finding a way to deinstall their current exhibitions, Rafael Domenech: Model to exhaust this place and In Practice: Total Disbelief and working closely with the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles to transport Tishan Hsu: Liquid Circuit to New York.
“We are strategizing creative ways to make these upcoming exhibitions safely accessible to the public, either in person or through digital platforms,” Rattemeyer said. “Of course, the timing of all of this could change, but we are monitoring the situation closely and will communicate exhibition developments as they become available.”
