Rafael Domenech: Model to exhaust this place (SculptureCenter Pavilion) closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020. The exhibition remained installed and off-view through the summer, but this new publication-object is a document of the show and the activities held in its mesh screens and gathering spaces earlier this year, pre-lockdown.

Containing new texts, images of the show’s modular panels and chairs in use for public programs, reproductions of ephemera, and plans for things that haven’t happened yet, the book is a physically condensed but expansive consideration of the ideas around urban space, artistic production, standardization, and adaptation that encompass Domenech’s heavy-duty practice.

Join Domenech and SculptureCenter for a book launch and conversation streamed live from Court Square Park, Long Island City, in the heart of a neighborhood now defined by its own version of standardized urban space.

A signed limited edition of hand-stitched books come packaged in a custom plywood case produced by Domenech. A larger print run of the book will also available in softcover.
