DESCRIPTION
Subjective Histories of Sculpture II furthers SculptureCenter's exploration of how contemporary artists think about sculpture - its contingencies and its legacies. Three artists at various stages of their careers have been invited to present their own take on art history. They cite as examples specific works, bodies of work, texts, or even personal anecdotes - taken from inside and outside cultural production, and inside and outside "art". These subjective, incomplete, partial, or otherwise eclectic histories question assumptions and examine ways of viewing the old and the new. They also propose structures that lend themselves to understanding sculpture's evolving strategies through an observation of behaviors, dreams, and mistakes over the course of human civilization.
