Please join us for the opening of A Working Model of the World on Thursday 28 September 6-8pm (with curator’s walk-through from 5.30pm)
at the Sheila C Johnson Design Centre, Parsons School of Design / The New School, 66 Fifth Ave at 13th St, New York
Exhibition continues to 13 December 2017
A Working Model of the World explores the practical, philosophical and symbolic work that models do for us, and asks how we use models to contemplate, experiment, invent and teach. It explores the losses and gains that flow from the way models isolate one part of the complexity of the world. The artists in the exhibition interrogate the role of models in human experience, including work by Brook Andrew, Corinne May Botz, Ian Burns, Maria Fernanda Cardoso, Kate Dunn, David Eastwood, caraballo-farman, Emily Floyd, Andrea Fraser & Jeff Preiss, Glen Hayward, Jo Law, Palle Nielsen, Kenzee Patterson, Sascha Pohflepp & Chris Woebken, Karolina Sobecka and jackie sumell. With loans from the CSIRO, Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona and The Isamu Noguchi Foundation and Garden Museum, New York.
Developed and Presented in partnership with UNSW Galleries, Sydney, the Sheila C. Johnson Design Centre, Parsons/The New School, New York and The Curators’ Department, Sydney. This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.
