Annual Exhibition of Emerging Artists
July 6 - 29, 2012

Selected by SculptureCenter curator Ruba Katrib and artist Marlo Pascual, recent works will be on view by 23 artists from across the United States working in sculpture, installation, video, photography, and painting. These works by young artists show a multifaceted and complex investigation of avant-garde movements–minimalism, arte povera, performance and conceptualism–even as they undercut and rework those legacies.
