For Immediate Release:


Mary Ceruti and Patrick Killoran in Conversation


STUDIO10 is pleased to announce SculptureCenter’s Mary Ceruti and artist Patrick Killoran in conversation—a special event in association with Patrick Killoran: Exeunt Angels at STUDIO10. Please join us on Sunday, January 11, from 4 – 6 PM, for a discussion in consideration of the exhibition and related themes. 

Patrick Killoran’s Exeunt Angels features two ongoing projects produced over the past decade—Shadow Inventory and Rebound—and a new sculpture—[sic] 1. The exhibition’s title, Exeunt Angels, is taken from the stage directions in Christopher Marlowe’s Doctor Faustus, and the title adumbrates Killoran’s interest in the heterogeneous ways in which the exchange of personal, legal, and economic obligation can interpolate and shape both human relationships and society as a whole. The transactions explored in Exeunt Angels will serve as the basis of the commerce of ideas that will take place between the artist and Ceruti. 

Mary Ceruti is SculptureCenter's Chief Curator and Executive Director. She oversees all aspects of program, planning, and organizational development and has spearheaded two major building projects. She has organized dozens of solo and group exhibitions of contemporary art and curated special projects and commissions by over 50 international artists. Before joining SculptureCenter in 1999, Mary worked as an independent curator and writer and was the Director of Programs at Capp Street Project, an acclaimed international residency program, commissioning installation projects in San Francisco from 1992-98. She started her career as a Curatorial Assistant at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Ms. Ceruti holds a B.A. in Philosophy from Haverford College and in Art History from Bryn Mawr College. She received her M.A. from the Inter-Arts Center at San Francisco State University after pursuing an in-depth study of community-based public art projects.

After moving to New York in 1996, Patrick Killoran’s first major project Observation Deck (Queens) was featured in the 1997 re-opening of PS1 where the work would remain installed for nearly a decade. His installation Immergence was presented at Las Cienegas Projects in Los Angeles in 2009 and since 2010 has been installed at Hyde Park Art Center in Chicago. In 2014, he had solo exhibitions a Samuel Freeman Gallery in Los Angeles and at The Bindery Projects in Saint Paul, Minnesota. Other solo projects include the Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford, Connecticut; IKON in Birmingham, UK. Killoran has been included in numerous international exhibitions, including Everyday, the 1998 Biennial of Sydney, Australia; Wanås 2000 at the Wanås Foundation in Sweden; All About Laughter at the Mori Museum in Tokyo, Japan; It is what it is. Or is it? at the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston. Grants received include Rema Hort Mann Foundation, Penny McCall Foundation and Pick Laudati Fund at Northwestern University. In 2014-15 he will be the Artist-in-Residence at the RDP Innovation Arts Residency Program, Skolkovo Institute in Moscow, RU and UT Austin. Killoran has taught at CalArts, Northwestern University, and is currently a Visiting Critic at Yale University’s School of Art, Sculpture. In 2002, Killoran's project Glass Outhouse was produced for the reopening at SculptureCenter.
