Curated by Dexter Wimberly, New American Sculpture opening on February 28 at FiveMyles Gallery highlights the work of nine artists who seek to challenge conventional thinking about sculpture and simultaneously express their cultural agency.
The exhibition’s title not only reflects the fact that the exhibited works are new, but it also conveys the artists’ fresh approach to three-dimensional art making.
“For these multidisciplinary artists sculpture is but one aspect of their practice, yet it emerges as the most potent manifestation of their creative output. New American Sculpture serves as a platform for some of their most exciting and insightful work,” says Wimberly.
Featured artists include Leonardo Benzant, Bradly Dever Treadaway, Lindsay Dye, Hugh Hayden, Asif Mian, Clive Murphy, Matt Sears, Kate Stone and Justin Randolph Thompson.
