“Sam Anderson: The Park”
On view through July 31
Sam Anderson has created a series of newly commissioned
sculptures and video work for SculptureCenter’s lower level
galleries. Anderson creates compositions with figures and
objects that inhabit oddly familiar relationships to the site
and viewer. Often depicting intimate and internal dynamics,
the arrangements are formal as well as psychological, effects
expressed through repetition and mutations in scale and style.
Using a range of found and made materials to construct her
scenes, each work borrows from language as well as personal
history to question how memory and emotion is indexed.

“Jim Henson Exhibit”
Opening on July 22
The Jim Henson Exhibition features a broad range of artifacts
from throughout Jim Henson’s remarkable television and
film career. It reveals how Henson and his team of builders,
performers, and writers brought to life the enduringly popular
worlds of “The Muppet Show,” “Sesame Street,” “Fraggle
Rock,” “The Dark Crystal” and “Labyrinth.” It also includes
material from Henson’s lesser known and experimental film
projects, presenting Henson as a restlessly creative performer,
filmmaker, and technical innovator.
