    Resulting from extensive research and over two hundred studio visits, this exhibition identifies specific new directions in sculpture today. This current generation of artists is locating new currency in art historical styles and aesthetic conventions, from the Baroque to minimalism, from the Classical to Pop. Revisiting traditional forms, these artists use a broad range of materials with invention and provocation and share a practical idealism about art's ability to address belief, politics, identity and human nature.

    While acknowledging the elastic language of sculpture by incorporating photography, video, installation, painting, and performance, the exhibition highlights the prevalence of object making in New York today. Including works by 28 artists and artist teams, Make It Now features both familiar names as well as artists at the very beginnings of their careers. The exhibition is installed throughout SculptureCenter's outdoor and indoor spaces and, focuses on art produced within the last year. Most of the works are created specifically for the exhibition and none have previously been seen in New York.
