This interactive sculpture by artist Virginia Overton is an undulating 488-foot-long brass tube that spans Storm King Art Center’s rolling fields. It mirrors the curves of the park’s hills carrying sound, picking up slight noises, and allowing visitors different aural experiences on their outdoor treks. Don’t miss the chance to experience this transformative site-specific installation! On view through November 30.

Q & A with Cross-Country Traveler Justine Kurland

Q. You have two projects opening this September at Mitchell-Innes & Nash. The first is a series of new photos titled “Sincere Auto Care.” What inspired you to focus on cars and the open road?

A. The cars came directly out of the train photographs — themes revolving around certain American values like freedom and self-determination. But specifically I remember driving along some highway talking to a friend who works as a landscaper on the phone.  He told me he had been working so much he felt like he was a tree.  And I realized I had been driving so much I was a car.

“One day I held up two pieces of wood, pushed them together and, incredibly, they conveyed strong and specific emotion. It was identifiable emotion but with no story explaining it, a disembodied emotion I could not fathom or explain. I felt like I had been hit on the head with a hammer. I realized all at once that it might be possible to communicate abstract emotion and ideas directly with objects, instead of indirectly with language.” — Richard Nonas (Richard Nonas with Alex Bacon,” Brooklyn Rail, March 4, 2013.)

An exhibition of work by Richard Nonas will be on view at Fergus McCaffrey from September 10–October 25, 2014.
