About the exhibition

"Sight lines within and alongside the galleries, as well as through their windows on 13th Street and Fifth Avenue, yield a mutating object theater. Forms give way to overlapping subject matter, from personal and cultural memory;
to translation, linguistic or technological; to idle time, economic abstractions, and ecological fragility.
Circumstantial though their assembly may be, these works and their makers play to the contradictions between them as much as they conjure momentary coalitions."

Matter As Fallen Light
 — on view from April 23 through May 7 at the Sheila Johnson Design Center in Manhattan’s Union Square neighborhood — the 27 practices of this year’s graduating cohort defy a single rubric, yet together manifest more than the sum of their parts. A surplus of sculpture and installation extends beyond two storefront galleries into adjacent corridors, windows, entrances, and the building’s exterior and street.
