The Palm Beach Institute of Contemporary Art (PBICA) is pleased to announce SCULPTURE NOW opening June 29 and running through August 25. SCULPTURE NOW is curated by PBICA Director Michael Rush and Assistant Curator Jody Servon.

This exhibition explores the unusual and provocative ways artists are re-defining sculpture. Each of the artists in SCULPTURE NOW has inherited a highly elastic view of sculpture. Unique as they are, each artist seeks to engage viewers with a rethinking of what sculpture can be, says Michael Rush, PBICA Director. Some want to provoke, others want to communicate something very personal. Some see technology as their friend, others see current consumerism, including technology, as toxic. Some want to engage all your senses, others want to make you a little uncomfortable. Some will inspire awe, others confusion, at least at first.

SCULPTURE NOW will be on view on the main floor of the museum. The artists in the exhibition are: Thomas Hirschhorn, Jaume Plensa, Xavier Veilhan, Leo Villareal, Robert Taplin and Cathy de Monchaux. Sally Ordiles work will be featured on the mezzanine. Accompanying the exhibition is a full-color publication with essays by Michael Rush, Jody Servon and Mark Daniel Cohen, a New York based artist and writer.
