    With her early works of the mid-1980s, McBride began her sculptural investigation into elements of architecture and design often focusing on the unacknowledged elements of buildings. Over the past ten years, this once seemingly idiosyncratic subject has proven to be one of the key directions for artists of the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Exhibition emphasizes McBride's ongoing investigations into spatially determined movement through sculptural form, and through Arena, it will become the site for a series of readings, performances, lectures and other activities. Arena and Secession Tower are seminal works that have never before been exhibited in North America. Mae West is a new work that directly confronts definitions of architecture and sculpture as monument. A new installation in SculptureCenter's courtyard subtly injects a hint of spirituality into the forms of modern industry. Exhibition focuses on the issues and intentions in Rita McBride's work that are most influential to her generation and those that have followed.
