SC Conversations: Sexing Sculpture
Friday, March 7, 11am-12pm
This program brings together the spring issue of Art Journal co-editors Jillian Hernandez and Susan Richmond, as well as contributor Gordon Hall, for a conversation about their subject of "sexing sculpture." They will explore the capacity for sculpture, and particularly abstract sculpture, to enable alternative modes of erotics and embodiment. Moderated by Ruba Katrib, SculptureCenter Curator.

In Practice: Chance Motives
Open Rehearsals: February 5-7, 12-6pm Daily
SculptureCenter is pleased to announce Chance Motives, a program of time-based work presented through In Practice, SculptureCenter's commissioning program for emerging artists. Chance Motives explores the possibilities for rupture within the ongoing performances of daily life and labor through techniques of orchestration and choreography. Loosely interpreted to include pedestrian systems, rituals, and routines; these performative modes are mobilized as alternatives to the tyranny of risk management. The works in the program make use of methods that can accommodate accident and error, in opposition to both algorithms of efficiency (devised for the hysterical demands of market production) and the pure chance operations of Fluxus.
