SculptureCenter is pleased to announce the In Practice program exhibition You never look at me from the place from which I see you, featuring works by A.K. Burns, Yve Laris Cohen, Michael DeLucia, Aleksandra Domanović, Takashi Horisaki, Sean Raspet, Christine Rebet, and Keith Connolly, Ethan Ham, and Tom Thayer, the exhibition is curated by Kristen Chappa, SculptureCenter’s Curatorial Associate.
You never look at me from the place from which I see you is organized around investigations into vision and location within our present moment, characterized by dispersed attention and spatial deterritorialization. In this current era of technological, cultural, and geopolitical exchange, what constitutes a site is more in flux than ever before, and the act of looking has perhaps never been more fragmented. This constellation of artists engages with scattered states that are prismatic and overwhelmed as a contextual given and an appropriate lens through which to consider contemporary relationships, interactions, and identities, and a means to arrive at revised notions of sculptural phenomenology.
SculptureCenter’s In Practice program supports the creation and presentation of new work by emerging artists and reflects diverse approaches to contemporary sculpture. Artists are selected through a call for proposals and are provided with an honorarium, production budget, fabrication and installation assistance, as well as invaluable curatorial and administrative support. This year SculptureCenter received over 850 applications from artists worldwide.
