Sam Anderson: The Park
Sam Anderson is creating a series of newly commissioned sculptures and video work for SculptureCenter's lower level galleries. Shifting scale in her sculptures, Anderson creates compositions with figures and objects that inhabit particular relationships to the site and viewer. Often depicting intimate worlds and dynamics that turn inwards, Anderson positions the viewer as outside of the interrelationships formed between her works. Using a range of found and made materials to construct her scenes, they present charged encounters.
Sam Anderson (born 1982 in Los Angeles; lives and works in New York) received her MFA from Yale University in 2010. Notable exhibitions include Endless Love, Tanya Leighton, Berlin (2015); Talley's Folly, Mother's Tankstation, Dublin (2015); The Mound Builders, Off Vendome, Düsseldorf (2014); and Flowers and Money, Chapter NY, New York City (2013). Recently, Anderson was included in Robert Bordo, Sam Anderson with Michel Auder, Bortolami, New York (2016); and Greater New York, MoMA PS1, Long Island City (2015). In 2013, Anderson presented a solo project as part of SculptureCenter's Now Showing series. She has an upcoming solo show at Kölnischer Kunstverein in Cologne, Germany.
