Exhibition: Closed for installation, Fiona Connor, SculptureCenter, #4

Friday, Jul 19, 2019 at 11:00am

Sculpture Center
44-19 Purves Street
Long Island City, NY 11101

Los Angeles-based artist Fiona Connor meticulously remakes discarded, disregarded, obsolete, or outdated everyday objects which at first glance might be taken as ready-mades. These objects include bulletin boards, park benches, community noticeboards, doors of closed down clubs, real estate signs, etc. While the works often appear as a monochrome or carry the expression of a post-minimalist sculpture, they are rerouted and processed through Connor’s investment in questions of labor and conditions of production (the studio, the workshop, the factory, the institution, and so on) as well as the larger social, historical, and geographical context within which an object lives and produces meaning. This year, Connor is imagining her various projects as an expanded artist-run space that spans multiple sites, situations, and institutions. As such Connor considers the idea of specificity to a place and time and how it relates to the larger practice of an artist working within the conditions of contemporary art. This exhibition is Connor’s first solo exhibition in a New York institution and will be curated by Sohrab Mohebbi.
