Current Exhibitions at the SculptureCenter include:
Teresa Burga: Mano Mal Dibujada Historical and recent works are on view, including Burga’s Prismas sculptures from the 1960s, and a new series of sculptures are presented for the first time in their entirety.
Charlotte Prodger: Subtotal Using narration, sound, and moving image, Prodger interweaves narrative fragments that imbed time and place through her subjectivity. This exhibition marks the U.S. premier of Prodger’s video work, BRIDGIT (2016), and includes a new site-specific sculpture and works on paper.
Sam Anderson: The Park Anderson’s series of newly commissioned sculptures, including a sound piece and video work for SculptureCenter’s lower level galleries, isolates and abstracts the idea of community.
Alejandro Cesarco: Words Like Love: Alphaville, First Scenes Cerarco’s temporary public art project is installed on a 14-by-48-foot billboard at the intersection of Jackson Avenue and Queens Plaza in Long Island City. The work is a textual interpretation of the opening scene of filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard's Alphaville (1965), an iconic science fiction/noir film that describes a futuristic dystopian society controlled by a supercomputer. Cesarco's project is the second artwork commissioned through Public Process, SculptureCenter's art education program.
