Giancarlo Norese
Four Italian artists, including Emilio Fantin, Luigi Negro, Giancarlo Norese, Cesare Pietroiusti and New York-based artist Joan Jonas will collaborate on this performance work. By combining semi-concrete, semi-absurdist methods with a wide variety of media, the artists will create stories, a play, and a collective peformance about sculptures and actual sculptors whose exposure has waned into oblivion.

Forgotten, Continuous, Influx: 30 hours at SculptureCenter
