Rafael Domenech: Model to exhaust this place

16 January - 23 March
Organized by: SculptureCenter
Venue: SculptureCenter
44–19 Purves Street
Long Island City

For his new commission at SculptureCenter, Rafael Domenech creates a large-scale modular installation in the ground floor gallery. Responding to the conditions of the exhibition space as a former trolley repair shop, Domenech uses the building’s existing structure, in particular the tracks of an industrial gantry system, as a machine to produce and facilitate the work. Working with materials typically destined for construction sites, the work engages with the urban vernacular of the rapidly growing neighborhood of Long Island City.
