    Anita Esfandiari’s sculptures engage with diverse mediums, mirroring the inherent socio-political, micro, and macroeconomic conditions that shape everyday reality. Her new work for SculptureCenter will juxtapose the materiality of Euro and Iranian Rial coins, highlighting the drastic fluctuations and dramatic inequality in the two currency values over the last years.


    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.
