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.

Happy Friday from all of us at SculptureCenter!

FEATURED ARTIST: Fay Nicolson 

Fay Nicolson works across painting, print, sculpture and photography, transforming works by dragging them through multiple processes; temporary arrangements of objects become semi-abstract photographs; watercolor paintings on graph paper translate into large digital prints on silk. Nicolson is fascinated by aesthetic education, and the methods or structures that have been used to develop, define and document such creative experiences. Nicolson often conducts repetitive visual and material exercises in her studio to generate large bodies of work, such as her on-going series of analogue photographs Marginal Notes.

Her recent solo exhibitions include A P E L at Almanac Projects and P A R E at West Lane South. Recent group exhibitions include Open Cube, White Cube and Mind Rhymes, Hidde van Seggelen Gallery, both in London, UK. Forthcoming exhibitions and projects include Open File: A Rehearsal, Outpost Gallery, Norwich UK, March 2014 and Textile Languages, Thalie Art Project, Brussels, Belgium, April 2014.

FEATURED ARTIST: Steve Bishop
Steve Bishop’s work examines the relationships between objects and their extended physical, spatial and perceptual properties. Bishop’s sculptures and installations operate as an ongoing inquiry into tangibility and the act of placement. Many of his recent installations are comprised through the utilisation of the exhibition space as a whole, wherein Bishop dismantles areas of the exhibition space revealing hidden areas and in other cases using the physicality of the air in the space as a medium. 
In March 2014, Bishop presented a solo exhibition, It’s Easier To Love Your Song Than It Is To Love You, at Supportico Lopez, Berlin. He will have his second solo show at Carlos/Ishikawa, London later this year.

FEATURED ARTIST: Breanne Trammell

Breanne Trammell’s studio-based work explores objects, icons, and touchstones from popular culture, and mines from her personal history. It presents common experiences and awkward memories that we come to terms with, and aims to celebrate our triumphant moments alongside everyday mundane experiences. Her art commemorates these experiences through humor and playful formalism—like a gigantic crocheted Cheeto or letter-pressed twitter posts.
Trammell lives and works in Wassaic, NY, where she is a core member of the Wassaic Project. Her work has been shown nationally and internationally, including at Mixed Greens Gallery, P.P.O.W. Gallery, Susan Inglett Gallery, and MASS MoCA. Most recently, she performed manicures at Pulse Contemporary Art Fair in Miami, was a Visiting Artist at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana, and was awarded the 2014 Ora Schneider Residency Grant at the Women’s Studio Workshop in Rosendale, NY. Breanne received her MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2008, is a Lecturer in Art+Design at SUNY Purchase, and has been a faculty member at Ramapo College of NJ since 2009.
