    Tony Chrenka’s studio practice pursues questions of work and perceptions of the progression of time through photography, drawing, and installation. At SculptureCenter, Chrenka will present a series of wooden relief sculptures and a related wall treatment in a work that posits sculpture as an ongoing manipulation of presence and absence in space over bounded intervals of time.


    In Practice is made possible by the Elaine Graham Weitzen Commissioning Fund for Emerging Artists, which supports the production of new work by artists selected from SculptureCenter's annual open call. This landmark endowment established in 2024 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. In Practice is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
