SculptureCenter to Host Artist-Led Lecture Series SUBJECTIVE HISTORIES OF SCULPTURE With B. Wurtz, 2/3

SculptureCenter, in collaboration with the Vera List Center for Art and Politics at The New School, presents the artist-led lecture series Subjective Histories of Sculpture Monday February 3 from 6:30-8:30pm. The lecture series will take place at the Theresa Lang Community and Student Center, 55 West 13th Street, 2nd Floor. This program, initiated in 2006, furthers SculptureCenter's exploration of how contemporary artists think about sculpture: its history, legacies, and potential for innovation. Admission is free.

This year, SculptureCenter invites two artists to consider the thematic focus of alignment. Utilizing sculpture as a point of departure and source of inspiration, Araya Rasdjarmrearook and B. Wurtz consider tensions and translations between the animate and inanimate, and the empirical and the subjective. Engaging with a rich collection of social, cultural, and political associations, these artists explore the material conditions of our lives and ask how we can re-think official narratives and systems of knowledge. Citing specific works, texts, and personal anecdotes taken from inside and outside cultural production, these subjective, incomplete, partial, or otherwise eclectic histories question assumptions and propose alternative methods for understanding sculpture's evolving strategies.

B. Wurtz was born in 1948 in Pasadena, California. He received a BA from University of California at Berkeley in 1970 and an MFA from California Institute of the Arts in 1980. His work has been exhibited at MoMA P.S.1, New York; Abrons Art Center, New York; MCA Chicago, IL; Musée d'Art Contemporain de Lyon, France; RISD Museum of Art, Providence, RI; Museums of Bat Yam, Israel.
