Danielle Dean Participates in "In Practice" at the SculptureCenter
Jan 29 2017 - Mar 27 2017
44-19 Purves Street
Long Island City, NY
Informed by encounters with the quotidian, unassuming stuff of life and its circulation, the artists included in In Practice: Material Deviance connect material and bodily processes with social and infrastructural ones. The artists look to irregularities, glitches, gaps, residues, and altered states – either found or enacted – as a means of accessing the latent histories of materials in order to expose underlying systems of power, regulation, value, and control. While these systems inevitably shape the movement of bodies through the world (both at the level of the individual and the social), the works on view reveal the cracks where counter-movements and improvisational modes of being and perceiving are possible. Among the artists involved in producing newly commissioned works are Creative Capital artist Danielle Dean.
