SculptureCenterleads the conversation on contemporary art by supporting artistic innovation and independent thought highlighting sculpture′s specific potential to change the way we engage with the world. Positioning artists′ work in larger cultural, historical, and aesthetic contexts, SculptureCenter discerns and interprets emerging ideas. Founded by artists in 1928, SculptureCenter provides an international forum that connects artists and audiences by presenting exhibitions, commissioning new work, and generating scholarship.

Mary Ceruti, SculptureCenter′s Executive Director and Chief Curator, will greet us and lead a tour of the space and the exhibition on view from April 30 – July 30, 2018. Operating at the limits of human perception and detectability, the artists in 74 million million million tons create a new visual lexicon by which those at the threshold of politics can emerge: the refugee, the robot, the environment, and others on the outskirts of legality. Directly intervening in the moments before events coalesce into knowledge and narrative, the artists in the exhibition anticipate and account for a variety of human (and non-human) subjectivities by measuring, documenting, and observing instances of that which is not yet widely known or accepted.

74 million million million tons is curated by Ruba Katrib and Lawrence Abu Hamdan. The exhibition features new and recent works by: Shadi Habib Allah, George Awde, Carolina Fusilier, Sidsel Meineche Hansen, Hiwa K, Nicholas Mangan, Sean Raspet and Nonfood, Susan Schuppli, Daniel R. Small, and Hong-Kai Wang.
