Exhibits at Wave Hill
Bronx Calling: The Second AIM Biennial features cutting edge work by New York area emerging artists who participated in The Bronx Museum of the Arts’ Artist in the Marketplace (AIM) program in the last two years. Organized by Gabriel de Guzman, Wave Hill Curator of Visual Arts; Elizabeth Grady, guest curator; and Lia Zaaloff, Bronx Museum Curator, the exhibition is presented concurrently at The Bronx Museum, Wave Hill, and 1285 Avenue of the Americas Art Gallery. Works by 24 artists will be on view at Wave Hill.
This exhibition showcases works by seven artists who use drawing to convey a deep connection to the natural world. The works encompass varied approaches to drawing that encourage visitors to take a close, intense look at technique, concept and ways of referencing nature. Artists include Firelei Baez, Judith Belzer, Ellie Irons, Samm Kunce, Sky Pape, Mia Rosenthal, Charlotte Schulz.
Wave Hill commissions a diverse set of emerging New York City artists to create a new body of work or site-specific project for a solo exhibition in the Sunroom Project Space. Jarrod Beck, Terri Chiao & Adam Frezza, Onyedika Chuke, Francisco Donoso, Matthew Jensen, Lynn Koble and Alan Ruiz were selected as this year’s Sunroom artists. In addition, two Van Lier Visual Artist Fellows, Onyedika Chuke and Francisco Donoso are participating.
Now in its fourth year, Wave Hill’s Winter Workspace Program transforms Glyndor Gallery into a space for artists to create new work and develop ongoing projects. Twelve artists, representing an array of artistic practices, will be in residence over two, six-week sessions, from early January until late March, 2013. Each of the two sessions include an Open Studio Sunday, and a series of artist-led workshops for visitors. At these events, artists engage with the public, giving visitors the opportunity to learn about the creative process behind each studio art project and hands-on workshop.
