25th SculptureCenter 'In Practice' exhibition features new commission by Hugh Hayden
17 March 2021
'In Practice: You may go, but this will bring you back' is the twenty-fifth iteration of SculptureCenter’s signature open call exhibition, featuring newly commissioned works by eleven artists, among them Hugh Hayden.
Opening on 25 March 2021, the exhibition will include sculpture, audio works, and video installations in the ground-floor reception area and across the lower-level galleries. The exhibition is curated by 2021 In Practice Curatorial Fellow Katherine Simóne Reynolds, who holds a curatorial position at the Luminary in St. Louis and is an artist; her work was included in In Practice: Other Objects at SculptureCenter in 2019. It will be accompanied by a fully illustrated catalog and a season of online programming that includes performances and an artist roundtable.
Looking at the ubiquitous New York City subway bench – intended for public use, but designed to inhibit sleeping – Hugh Hayden’s new sculpture interrogates the passive aggression within a neoliberal society.
'In Practice' is on view through 2 August. Find further information here.
