Founded by artists in 1928, SculptureCenter is a not-for-profit arts institution located in Long Island City, NY. We commission new work and present exhibits by emerging and established artists from New York and around the world. Our Tumblr site focuses on emerging artists and work that offers new ways of considering sculpture, or furthers the understanding of the discipline and how it can intersect with other mediums. Content is selected by SculptureCenter’s curatorial staff and guest curators.

Club Paint (Keith Boadwee, Isaac Gray, Erin Allen). French Revolution, 2011. Oil on Canvas. Courtesy the artists.On Tuesday, March 19 at 7pm, SculptureCenter is pleased to present On Pedagogy and Practice with Keith Boadwee and Justin Lieberman. This program draws on an existing dialog between two artists whose practices are acutely influenced by their experiences as art professors. Both artist-teachers share an interest in collective authorship and radical education, and take a critical stance toward of the professionalization of art school. In their artwork, Boadwee and Lieberman push questions of accepted taste, challenging existing academic standards. Boadwee will discuss Club Paint, an ongoing collaboration with two of his former students, Isaac Gray and Erin Allen. Lieberman will speak on his S. A. C. (Student Art Collective) project, currently on view at SculptureCenter, which examines ethics and power relations in pedagogical settings.
