The View From Here, Storm King at Fifty (indoor exhibition); 5+5: New Perspectives, Storm King at Fifty (outdoor exhibition)

June 5 – November 14, 2010
April 1 – November 14, 2011

5+5: New Perspectives, comprising 12 new and recent works by ten artists, is sited in Storm King's expansive landscape. It includes work by five artists who are new to Storm King and five who are represented in the collection. Six of the sculptures were created specifically for this occasion. Inside the Museum Building, The View from Here: Storm King at Fifty explores key aspects of Storm King's rich and varied history. 

5+5: New Perspectives
Artists already represented in Storm King's collection are: Alice Aycock, Chakaia Booker, Mark di Suvero, Andy Goldsworthy, and Ursula von Rydingsvard. Five are new to Storm King: John Bisbee, Maria Elena Gonzalez, Darrell Petit, Alyson Shotz, and Stephen Talasnik. For this special presentation, Storm King Director and Curator David R. Collens worked with the artists to select locations in which to site the sculptures, which will be dispersed throughout Storm King's verdant hills and fields. The sculptures can thus be appreciated for their intrinsic value, as well as in relation to nearby works with which they stand in dialogue, offering new perspectives on Storm King's celebrated collection.

The View from Here: Storm King at Fifty
Inside the Museum Building, The View from Here: Storm King at Fifty explores Storm King's history, including the development of its collection and the creation of its carefully cultivated landscape. Thanks to Storm King's wealth of archival documents and photographs, the exhibition will evolve and change over the course of two seasons, as new materials are added in place of others and the artists whose works are highlighted change. These documentary materials, along with videos and digital content produced for the exhibition, offer a compelling narrative of Storm King's first 50 years, illuminating its unique place in the contemporary art world and looking toward its future.
