Sculpture introduces new exhibition program "Now Showing" at SculptureCenter

LONG ISLAND CITY, NY.- SculptureCenter announces Now Showing: Sam Anderson. Now Showing is a new program, highlighting a single artwork or project in areas throughout SculptureCenter's building. Working with artists to find new ways of approaching the unique architecture of SculptureCenter, Now Showing is an exploratory and flexible mode for presenting artworks and projects to our audiences.

For this first iteration, New York based artist, Sam Anderson presents a new sculptural work within a space newly created by the current renovation of the SculptureCenter building. Within this intimate space, she worked responsively to the site and context of the project by incorporating ideas and images around general notions of inauguration and public celebration.

Working primarily sculpture, as well as film, Anderson creates small-scale works that often resemble models or prototypes. Through her careful adjustments of scale and placement of objects—her works evoke mise-en-scenes—although she eludes clear narratives. Balancing between the humorous and the unsettling, Anderson’s works conjure low-fi films or theatrical sets, where the materials employed can impact the intended genre or reception. Anderson’s sculptures are prompts for the spatial construction of narratives, pointing to disciplines, such as film and literature.

Sam Anderson lives and works in New York, NY. Select group exhibitions include First Among Equals, Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia, PA (2012); Chat D’Oeuvres Part 2 (2011) and Chat D’Oeuvres (2010), Anthology Film Archives, New York, NY; and Poetry Club, curated by Fia Backstrom, White Columns, New York, NY (2008).
