At the center of Wade Guyton's installation is a plywood facsimile of a sculpture by Antoni Milkowski. This sculpture, exemplary of a school of 70’s abstract steel sculpture, has - over the years - been located in several different public areas in Midtown Manhattan. At Socrates, Guyton copies it and displaces it again, complicating its retrospective style with historical memory and a shift in materiality.
