Figurative Sculpture in Social Critique: Curating the Straus Family Collection

Date/Time

Mar 17, 2019
03:30 PM until 05:00 PM

Description

Take a closer look at figurative sculpture and its role in social critique. Join New Museum’s Kraus Family Curator Gary Carrion-Murayari, Death is Irrelevant co-curator Tim Hawkinson and collector and curator Sarena Straus as they investigate the social and political dimensions of contemporary figurative sculpture, with a special focus on Polish artist Paweł Althamer’s The Power of Now (2016). Moderated by Hyperallergic editor and Minerva Projects founding director Yasmeen Siddiqui, panelists will discuss the use of the body as medium and message in sculptural practice before exploring the  “body” of the Straus Family Collection, and the process and challenges of curating a private collection into a museum exhibition.

 

Seating is limited and available on a first come, first served basis. Those who purchase or reserve admissions tickets in advance will be guaranteed seating.

The event was organized in collaboration with the Polish Cultural Institute New York.
