New York City's only museum of contemporary art dedicated to sculpture will present works donated by artists to support its program, including Ursula von Rydingsvard, Jenny Holzer, Leslie Hewitt, Adam McEwen, Mika Tajima, and Turner Prize nominee Anthea Hamilton.
Founded by artists in 1928, SculptureCenter is New York City’s only contemporary art museum dedicated to sculpture, commissioning new work and presenting exhibitions by both emerging and established, national and international artists. For EXPO CHICAGO, SculptureCenter will feature limited editions by Anthea Hamilton, nominated for this year's Turner Prize for her recent SculptureCenter exhibition, Lichen! Libido! Chastity!; Mika Tajima, whose temporary public art project commissioned by SculptureCenter is currently on view on New York City's waterfront; and Leslie Hewitt, whose first solo institutional exhibition in New York was on view at SculptureCenter in 2016. Additionally, SculptureCenter will show works donated by artists including Ursula von Rydingsvard, Blake Rayne and Kyle Thurman, sales from which will benefit the institution’s recent capital expansion.
