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.

Working primarily with sculpture, video, installation and photography, Molly Lowe speaks to the absurdity, awkwardness and conflict of living in a human body. Grounded in the art of disguise, Lowe creates uncanny alter-realities and costumes that imbue the everyday with a mythological sense of importance. She has held residencies with Tropical Lab in Singapore, Skowhegan School in Maine, Elsewhere in North Carolina and HMK in the Netherlands. Lowe lives and works in New York. She currently participates in SculptureCenter’s 2012-2013 In Practice program, culminating in an exhibition of new work. Double Life opens at SculptureCenter on January 13, 5-7PM and runs through March 25.
