Sculpture Show in Sag Harbor on 8.19.21
On the evening of August 19th, ABC Stone, in partnership with the New York Academy of Art and curator Peter Drake, hosted the tenth annual sculpture exhibition in celebration of The Carrara Merit Residency Scholarship. The exhibition featured 25 sculptures from 16 artists and provided a necessary and ongoing platform for the amplification of a culturally and ethnically diverse group of artists which reflects the world through their distinct lenses.
Guests were invited to wander through a lush, six-acre property in the heart of Sag Harbor that had been transformed into an other-worldly, sculpture-infused labyrinth. The pieces were grouped thematically and curated into separate vignettes as a comment on society and the state of our world today.
As in previous years, the works on view were augmented by performance art, music, and interactive video elements.
In continuing the exhibition series and the Carrara Residency program, ABC aims to honor its ongoing commitment to promoting and sustaining the use of stone in artistic practice and play a role in the continuance of this millennia-old art form. Now in its 11th year, the Carrara Residency Merit Scholarship is among the most popular Residencies and garners the most diverse pool of applicants among the MFA students at the New York Academy of Art. The honorees are selected by a group of architects, designers, artists, and magazine editors who meet with and interview each applicant in person.

In total, 4,000 stone panels were employed to construct the facility, which was designed by Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects (TWBTA) with engineering work facilitated by PICCO Engineering.
