SC Conversations: On Architecture and Decoration with Katrín Sigurdardóttir and Daniëlle Kisluk-Grosheide
Monday June 9, 7 pm

SculptureCenter Director and Chief Curator, Mary Ceruti will lead a conversation between exhibiting artist Katrín Sigurdardóttir and Danielle Kisluk-Grosheide, Curator in the Department of European Sculpture and Arts at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Taking Sigurdardóttir’s work, Foundation, as its starting point, the conversation will consider how architecture, art and design reflect the historical periods in which they are made, the relationship between labor and materiality, and notions of expression and authorship.

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.
