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.


Born in Lohr am Main, Germany, Nadja Frank lives and works in New York and Berlin. Her work operates on the boundary between painting, sculpture and environmental interventions. She engages with natural elements that acknowledge their own temporality and evolutional change to explore how light and color can determine and create space. Nadja received her MFA from Columbia University. She was awarded the Emerging Artist Fellowship Residency at Socrates Sculpture Park in 2011. Her most recent solo exhibition, Low Dry Hot, was held at 401contemporary in Berlin.
