Newest W2S Series Exhibitions at Sculpture Center Debut Thursday

Posted By on Wed, Mar 25, 2015 at 1:34 PM

From 5:30 to 8 p.m. this Thursday, Mar. 26, the Sculpture Center hosts an opening reception for its latest exhibitions. At 6:15 p.m., John Douglas Powers will discuss his exhibition, Revenant, as part of the Sculpture Center’s ongoing 2015 W2S series in the Euclid Avenue Gallery. Derek Coté will speak about his Terra Nullius (No Man’s Land) in the Main Gallery at 7 p.m.

“The Sculpture Center’s W2S series, in its 25th year, supports the exhibition of new work created by some of the very best early career sculptors of our region,” explains Executive Director Ann Albano. “Derek Coté’s Freezer Burn and John Douglas Powers’s Revenant are responses to very particular physical landscapes, the increasingly politically disputed frozen Artic and the heavily worked farmlands of Indiana, which the artists have used for unsettling meditations upon the future.”

Powers is interested in the allure of the unattainable and its connection to the passage of time. Revenant references his upbringing in rural Indiana, as well as the agrarian machines used to manipulate and cultivate the landscape.

Derek Coté’s Terra Nullius is a response to his ongoing participation in geographic explorations in Alaska, the Arctic Circle and Iceland. The enveloping installation includes mixed media objects, projected video loops, sound, kinetic elements and photographs.

The exhibitions and reception are free and open to the public.
