LONG ISLAND CITY, NY.- SculptureCenter announced the appointment of Sohrab Mohebbi to the position of Director. Mohebbi joins SculptureCenter from the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh, PA, where he serves as the Kathe and Jim Patrinos Curator of the 58th Carnegie International, opening in September 2022. Mohebbi has also served as SculptureCenter’s Curator-at-Large since 2020, and as Curator between 2018 and 2020. Mohebbi will continue his work on the Carnegie International through October 2022 while beginning his new role at SculptureCenter in March 2022.

SculptureCenter Board Chair Carol Bove said, “We look forward to working with Sohrab to achieve a dynamic vision for SculptureCenter that we saw emerging in his curatorial work with our institution. He brings an energy, perspective, and deep understanding of global cultural movements from his extensive collegial relationships with artists and institutions worldwide. Mohebbi is uniquely qualified to lead us into an exciting new phase as we deliver on our mission to lead the conversation on contemporary art.”

Mohebbi said, “In the past few years, we have all been trying to reassess what we do, how we do it, and why we do it. At SculptureCenter we have a chance to experiment with and learn from these new institutional discourses and possibilities to better serve our constituents and our living environment. As many aspects of human life, culture, and politics evaporate into the cloud, SculptureCenter’s mission enables us to see how art reframes our relationship with matter, emergent objects, and forms.”

Kyle Dancewicz, who has acted as SculptureCenter’s Interim Director since September 2020, will serve as Deputy Director under Mohebbi.

“I am fortunate that Kyle Dancewicz has accepted my invitation to take on a new role in the institution as Deputy Director,” Mohebbi said. “Together we will reconfigure our curatorial modules and extend their reach and impact of SculptureCenter’s highly regarded exhibitions, expand our public programming and institutional collaborations, and rethink the potentialities of our unique space, which allows for artistic experiments that are not possible in traditional white cube and gallery spaces.”

He continued, “I am honored that the Board of Trustees has granted me the opportunity to lead one of the oldest running art institutions in New York as we approach SculptureCenter’s 100th year of activity.”
