January 09 - February 20, 2004
Cullinane paid two visits to Northeast Ohio, taking a break for time with family during the holidays. After scouring the sign shops and abundant industrial supply stock of Cleveland, he created four separate pieces for his multi-media installation, Stadium, on view Jan 9–Feb 20, 2004. In addition to presenting a lecture at SPACES to a diverse audience, Cullinane discussed his life as an artist with art students at Max S. Hayes Vocational, a Cleveland Public High School. Later these students helped him with the monumental task of creating a wall piece out of tens of thousands of metal pushpins. Stadium suggests an inherent violence in America's sports-culture, a confusion of work, play, and war. The Guggenheim Museum's associate curator Susan Cross (NYC) discusses Cullinane's new work in the brochure published by SPACES.
