    Opening Reception
    Jan 24, 2024, 6–8pm

    Claudia Pagès’s work circulates word, body, music, and movement in multiple directions, tracing the continuity of logistics systems (like shipping and transport) alongside legal language and proceedings in hypnotic video installations. Pagès refers to the subjects of her work as “containment architectures,” upholding power through the flow of goods and capital. Pagès' new work for SculptureCenter is a video sculpture recorded in an Islamic water cistern (aljibe) located in Xàtiva (Valencia, Spain), the first city where paper was introduced in Europe through the Silk Road. Filled with graffiti from different periods, Pagès navigates the cistern through the overlapping of time, marks, and sound.


    In Practice 2023 is made possible by the generosity of the Elaine Graham Weitzen Foundation for Fine Arts. The Foundation’s support for SculptureCenter’s annual open call exhibition reflects Elaine Graham Weitzen’s (1920-2017) lifelong commitment to emerging artists and her exuberant support of new ideas in art. Weitzen served as a devoted Trustee of SculptureCenter from 1987 to 2017.

    Major support for the In Practice program is provided by the Pollock-Krasner Foundation. The In Practice program is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
