SculptureCenter is pleased to present 74 million million million tons, a group exhibition of ten international artists identifying some of the most urgent ideas that inform the production of contemporary art today. 74 million million million tons is curated by Ruba Katrib and Lawrence Abu Hamdan. Join us to celebrate the opening of the exhibition on Sunday, April 29, 2018, 5-7pm.

74 million million million tons
Operating at the limits of human perception and detectability, the artists in 74 million million million tons create a new visual lexicon by which those at the threshold of politics can emerge: the refugee, the robot, the environment, and others on the outskirts of legality. Directly intervening in the moments before events coalesce into knowledge and narrative, they anticipate and account for a variety of human (and non-human) subjectivities by measuring, documenting, and observing instances of what is not yet widely known or accepted. The exhibition features work by Shadi Habib Allah, George Awde, Carolina Fusilier, Sidsel Meineche Hansen, Hiwa K, Nicholas Mangan, Sean Raspet and Nonfood, Susan Schuppli, Daniel R. Small, and Hong-Kai Wang.

This event is open to the public, no RSVP is required.
