LONG ISLAND CITY, NY.- SculptureCenter presents Knight's Move , a group exhibition organized by SculptureCenter curator Fionn Meade. Knight's Move is on view May 3 - July 26, 2010.

As the one piece on the board that moves either forward or backward but always laterally in the same gesture, the knight's move is a tactical one, relying upon stealth, surprise, and sidelong views. This spring SculptureCenter presents a group exhibition that brings together artists prominent to the dialog of New York's recent past as well as those at the very beginning of their careers. Curated by Fionn Meade, this survey of new sculpture in New York embodies an informed yet playful and questioning view of the contemporary.

Has Modernism and its various aftermaths approached the status of an inventory to be studied, borrowed from, and traded upon in ways that move beyond the anxiety of influence and endgame maneuvers? How can strategies of estrangement, appropriation, and abstraction exist alongside direct engagements with materiality, figuration, and storytelling? Can the makeshift, readymade, and precarious exist in dialog with the meticulous, obsessive, and finely crafted? Does political agency require a process of collaborative rehearsal? And how has the art of production challenged the presumed roles of performer and observer, director and spectator?

The knight's move is a quixotic entry into uncertainty that demands ingenuity and a swift response. It can be both Buster Keaton dodging into an alleyway as the pursuit rushes by, and the capacity to think two or three moves ahead. In New York, a city constantly inventing its present, the knight's move evokes an embrace of the episodic and ever shifting, a willingness to articulate, envision, and stage what comes next.

Knight's Move will be accompanied by a catalog featuring artist profiles and an essay by SculptureCenter Curator Fionn Meade. The catalog will be available in late June.

Performance programs have been organized in collaboration with New York-based curator and writer Jay Sanders, expanding the exhibition's view into New York performance, literature, and music. Alternately taking the form of a literary salon, nightclub, and workshop, the exhibition hosts a series of sequenced events that redirect, overlap, and amplify the work on view.

Artists participating: Uri Aran, David Brooks, Carter, Nikolas Gambaroff, Tamar Halpern, Alex Hubbard, Esther Kläs, Daniel Lefcourt, Joanna Malinowska, Ohad Meromi, Virginia Poundstone, Cassie Raihl, Erin Shirreff, Alexandre Singh, Matt Sheridan Smith, Mika Tajima, Tom Thayer, Sara VanDerBeek, Allyson Vieira
