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

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.
