Excerpted from John Yau’s essay for the Sculptors Guild Catalog “Currently 80”
“Each sculpture embodies a different vision of the world, of the past, present, and future. Some of the sculptures are whimsical: others touch on the tragic. The sculptors present a span of human emotions as wide as the range of their materials, shaped by the mind as much as by the hand. “
…”this exhibition of works by members of the Sculptors Guild at Westbeth… should serve as a healthy reminder of the importance of the relationship between independence and community. Neither can exist without the other, which is something we should never lose sight of. “

About Transformation:

Transformations are everywhere. from the Climate to the Cosmos, from

Economics to the Social and Political. Transformations ignite the

magic and alchemy that is the very essence of the artists' work,

presenting new ways of seeing, making, and experiencing.

On Governors Island this summer the Sculptors Guild proudly presents

38 sculptors in the exhibition Transformation. The artists exploring

these changes use a diverse range of media and approaches, reflecting

the tools and materials that technology has made available, and

incorporating diverse materials of video, sound, scent, recycled

materials, gems, wood, steel, cement, and the like.

The work is presented in five galleries in five individually themed

shows. These themes express different aspects of transformation by

delving into issues of everyday significance, revealed in physical

structures, objects, and mixed-media installations as a pathway for


Balancing Act: seeking a point between opposing forces

Broken Lines: geometric distortion and motion

Organicity: observations of change in the heart of nature

Poetry & Prose: transformative sculpture expressing the power of


Upcycle: innovative relationships between the natural, the

artificial, and the overlooked

Transformation also includes:

- New Members Gallery

- Outdoor Works,

- Summer-long Artist Residency.

The mission of the Sculptors Guild has always been to bring

sculptural experience directly to the public. At the Guild, we are

proud of our illustrious past that includes notable sculptors such as

Louise Bourgeois, David Smith, Louise Nevelson and Chaim Gross. While

we reshape and change our Guild to focus on a new generation of

contemporary sculptors, we are energized by our heritage and

excited about our future.!
