SculptureCenter is pleased to present the group exhibition < i>A Disagreeable Object. Taking its title from Alberto Giacometti's sur realist sculptures\, this building-wide exhibition explores themes of desir e and repulsion\, the familiar and the unfamiliar. The surrealist object wa s situated at a remove from its status as an artwork\; it operated in direc t response to\, and simultaneously influenced\, social and cultural attitud es towards developments in art\, industry\, design and commodification. Thi s exhibition brings together a group of international artists who similarly posit the object in relation to capitalist culture and technology\, as wel l as the gendered oppositions between interior and exterior space. Strategi es implemented by the surrealists have a newfound relevancy\, such as the u ncanny and informe\, although the current context has shifted. This exhibition examines these impulses in current art and poses questions about relationships between the present-day status of the economy\, the body\, d omesticity\, technology\, and eros.
