SculptureCenter presents Double Life Presented through the In Practice Program

SculptureCenter presents Double Life Presented through the In Practice Program, an exhibition on view through March 25, 2013.

SculptureCenter is pleased to present the exhibition Double Life, which brings together a group of artists that share a performance-based approach to sculpture by re-staging completed artworks, readymades, and original self-sampled content. Objects and images are removed from specific institutional frameworks, historical moments, or modes of distribution in order to disrupt their assumed status and meaning. Amidst current conditions that are multicultural and hyper-mediated, the included artists investigate themes such as alienation, memory, and identity construction. Adopting a sense of synchronistic time that is at once immediate and located in moments of reflection, Double Life looks at the contemporary artist examining him or herself, as well as our collective nature as self-performers.

The newly commissioned projects presented in Double Life were created as part of SculptureCenter’s In Practice program. In Practice supports the creation and presentation of new work by emerging artists and reflects diverse approaches to contemporary sculpture. Artists are selected through a call for proposals and are provided with an honorarium, production budget, fabrication and installation assistance, as well as invaluable curatorial and administrative support. This year SculptureCenter received over 800 applications from artists worldwide. Double Life is curated by Kristen Chappa, SculptureCenter Assistant Curator.

The In Practice program made possible with the generous support of the Joan Mitchell Foundation and the Pollock-Krasner Foundation.
