SculptureCenter’s Spring 2019 Exhibitions Include Jean-Luc Moulène, Fiona Connor, and More
April 29 – July 29
More or Less Bone (Formal Topological Optimization) (Paris-NY, 2018-19) is a monumental new work in fiberglass and epoxy paint by Jean-Luc Moulène. Collaborating with engineers with advanced expertise in formal optimization, Moulène produced an object that is nothing but its own condition of existence: a form defined as efficient for a given set of material conditions and environmental variables. More or Less Bone continues Moulène’s recent investigations into the intersections of advanced technology and contemporary material culture.
April 29 – July 29
For her new commission at SculptureCenter, Fiona Connor produces a set of intersecting works that bring together the artist’s investment in the various operations of sculpture. As concrete objects and ephemeral actions, her works incorporate not only different sites, such as the studio, the workshop, the foundry, the institution, and the library, but also multiple sets of relations and modes of labor: contractual, industrial, emotional, and otherwise.
May 19 – August 18
For over a decade, Matt Keegan has worked to synthesize his interest in language, whether rooted in pedagogy and cognition or the vernacular and social. Installed in Long Island City’s Court Square Park, what was & what is distills real estate development’s rhetorical and visual devices in an object that speaks the language of urban development while prompting opportunity for reflection on the fastest-growing neighborhood in New York City.
May 23 – July 29
garcia’s work implicitly asks where in chains of production, tradition, and command one might locate oneself, and how this is knowable. His work, for example, faithfully continues certain rural handcraft and gendered family traditions, while his own itinerant lifestyle necessarily drags the detritus of many places into his practice. Social and cultural associations of these techniques, materials, and objects are reimagined through garcia’s trajectory.
SculptureCenter is located in Long Island City (44-19 Purves Street), and is open Thursday-Monday, 11am-6pm.
