American artist Scott Burton (1939–1989) made what he described as “sculpture in love with furniture.” Highlighting the breadth of Burton’s innovative practice as a sculptor, performance artist, and public artist, this will be the most comprehensive exhibition in the United States since his untimely death of AIDS-related illness in 1989. The presentation will include over forty artworks that focus on the artist’s use of furniture and performance to express identity and explore social dynamics, such as intimacy, distance, collectivity, and isolation. In addition to the artist’s sculptures, photographs, drawings, and documentation of performances, it will also shed light on Burton’s important contributions to conceptual art, public art, and queer art, as well as his roles as a curator and art critic.
