SculptureCenter is pleased to present three solo exhibitions by Sam Anderson, Teresa Burga, and Charlotte Prodger, on view through July 31, 2017. This is the first solo exhibition in a U.S. museum for each artist. The three exhibitions are curated by SculptureCenter Curator Ruba Katrib.

Sam Anderson: The Park
Anderson's series of newly commissioned sculptures, including a sound piece and video work for SculptureCenter’s lower level galleries, isolates and abstracts the idea of community. Using a range of found and made materials to construct her scenes, each work borrows from language as well as personal history to question how memory and emotion are indexed.

Teresa Burga: Mano Mal Dibujada
Historical and recent works are on view, including Burga’s Prismas sculptures from the 1960s, and a new series of sculptures are presented for the first time in their entirety. Burga has a humorous pop sensibility through which she articulates a critical relationship between femininity and childishness in opposition to historically masculine associations with artistic authorship.

Charlotte Prodger: Subtotal
Using narration, sound, and moving image, Prodger interweaves narrative fragments that imbed time and place through her subjectivity. This exhibition marks the U.S. premier of Prodger’s video work, BRIDGIT (2016), shot entirely on her iPhone, which she approaches as a prosthesis—almost an extension of the nervous system—and includes a new site-specific sculpture and works on paper. Taking its title from the Neolithic deity, BRIDGIT is a journey across vast time periods and landscapes, focusing on female attachments that include friends and shape-shifting entities, among other figures of admiration. 

SculptureCenter is also pleased to announce a temporary public art project by Alejandro Cesarco on view June 3 through July 2, 2017.

Public Process
Alejandro Cesarco: Words Like Love: Alphaville, First Scenes
Words Like Love: Alphaville, First Scenes will be installed on a 14-by-48-foot billboard at the intersection of Jackson Avenue and Queens Plaza in Long Island City. It will be the second artwork commissioned through SculptureCenter’s art education program Public Process. Cesarco’s work will be a textual interpretation of the opening scene of filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard’s Alphaville (1965), an iconic science fiction/noir film that describes a futuristic dystopian society controlled by a supercomputer. Through its prominent placement over a busy intersection in Queens, the billboard will point to how texts mediate public space and social life while locating critical and resistant capacities in the acts of reading and interpretation.

The project is curated by SculptureCenter Chief Curator and Executive Director, Mary Ceruti.
