Washington, D.C.: but, also is pleased to present SSSSSS // Small Scale Site Specific Sculpture Show.

Reconsidering the functions and roles of sculpture in domestic spaces, artists submitted proposals through an open call to create small scale sculptural works that are designed specifically for home interiors.

SSSSSS will be on view and on sale from March 5 - April 9, 2022 at but, also’s new temporary space at 1418 North Capitol St NW, Washington, DC 20002. There will be an opening reception on March 5th from 4pm-6pm, artists talks on March 17 and April 7, 2022 and regular hours open to the public that will all adhere to Washington, DC’s most up-to-date Covid-19 protocol.

From bedrooms and dining rooms, to bathrooms and showers, to desks and entryways, the  artists in SSSSSS created artworks that engage in the role that art can play in our lives and in our homes. The exhibition space is first transformed into a pseudo-home, recreating elements of familiar home interiors in which each site-specific work is destined to live. A sink will protrude from the wall and become home to a work of art, a desk will reside in the gallery as a pedestal, a window sill as a shelf.

In keeping with but, also’s mission to create generative opportunities for artists to make work that can financially supplement their primary art practice, the purpose of this exhibition is to open visitors up to the possibility of collecting contemporary sculpture even if they do not live in palatial homes. We see sculpture represented in museums and galleries out of reach in scale or price, but this doesn’t mean we can’t collect sculpture. By keeping accessibility at the forefront, SSSSS will create a space where artists can experiment, and where members of the DC community can come together around art and artists.

This exhibition is made possible through a Projects, Events and Festivals Grant from the DC Commission for the Arts and Humanities.
