Sculpture 1991-2009
SculptureCenter is pleased to premiere Ursula von Rydingsvard: Sculpture 1991 - 2009. Organized by SculptureCenter, this traveling exhibition will include a selection of the artist's most significant sculptures, including wall reliefs and monumental cedar works created from 1991 to 2009. The SculptureCenter presentation will also feature several works not traveling including a new cast resin piece to be installed in SculptureCenter's outdoor exhibition court. Ursula von Rydingsvard: Sculpture will be accompanied by a fully- illustrated monograph co- published by Prestel and authored by art historian Patricia Phillips Vide-Poche

MiChele Abeles, Samuel Clagnaz, Isabelle Cornaro, Miles Huston, Charles Mayton, Valerie Snobeck
Presented through SculptureCenter's In Practice program, this group exhibition explores what arises from the gesture of emptying out form and content. The French phrase vide-poche literally translates to "empty pocket" but also describes a tray or pouch that can hold the miscellany of daily life, personal affects, and tokens of transaction.
