  • SculptureCenter 
    The art-rich neighborhood of Long Island City is home to many converted industrial spaces, artists' studios and museums. One place dedicated to new and innovative developments in contemporary sculpture is the SculptureCenter. This space, designed by architect Maya Lin, is housed inside a former trolley repair shop and features concrete archways, high ceilings, brick walls and exposed iron beams. Opening on October 2, Puddle, pothole, portal is the inaugural exhibition in the SculptureCenter's newly revamped exhibition space, which also includes a spruced-up courtyard gallery. This group exhibition explores the relationship between unrelated objects and locations that interact within the same elements. For example, there's artist Camille Blatrix's singing mailbox that's awaiting the arrival of a letter, an installation of hanging objects created by Chadwick Rantanen and sculptures showcased for the first time in America by Japanese pop artist Keiichi Tanaami.
