    Commissioned through SculptureCenter's Artist-in-Residence program, Nancy Rubins will transform SculptureCenter's main space with a new installation: MoMA and Airplane Parts that visited Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain 2002/2003 then visited Forte Belvedere in 2003 and is now at SculptureCenter.

    For SculptureCenter Nancy Rubins will use airplane parts in a configuration specifically adapted to SculptureCenter's main space. Rubins will reconfigure parts of a work dating from 1995, furthering her ongoing study of form and her practice of reutilizing materials. What were once discarded materials are gathered, assembled, de-installed, stored and reassembled. With each new set of parameters, a new configuration is possible. The title of the resulting piece presented this fall translates this approach: each sculpture gains from its overlapped history, while recreating a new set of circumstances from which it is inseparable.
