Exhibits at Wave Hill
Recapturing the Scenic Wilds investigates natural history as a framing device in contemporary art, raising questions about the capture, collection and display of nature.
With the "Fireflies" series of photographs, Gregory Crewdson frames that fleeting moment when the sun slips away and the beguiling insects begin their electric dance. From one image to the next there is a multiplicity of movement, a sense of the unexpected and the uncanny.
Curated by sound and media artist Stephen Vitiello and organized by Independent Curators International (ICI), this installation brings together evocative sounds, some made by traditional instruments and field recordings, others masked through electronic processes.
Celebrating the fifth year of the Winter Workspace program, this exhibition assembles artworks by past Workspace artists who closely examined, and were inspired by, the living collection in Wave Hill's Marco Polo Stufano Conservatory.
Wave Hill commissions a diverse group of emerging New York-area artists to create a new body of work or site-specific project for a solo exhibition in the Sunroom Project Space. Brandon Neubauer, Kristyna and Marek Milde, Reade Bryan, Lauren Carly Shaw and Hilary Lorenz were selected as this year’s Sunroom artists. In addition, two Van Lier Visual Artist Fellows, Tammy Nguyen and Alexandra Phillips are participating.
For the fifth winter season, Wave Hill uses Glyndor Gallery as studio spaces for artists in the Winter Workspace Program. This year’s artists are Whitney Artell, Cristina Ataide, Aron Louis Cohen, Shanti Grumbine, Jessica Lagunas, Dana Levy, Evie McKenna, Cheryl Molnar, Jan Mun, Brandon Neubauer, Tammy Nguyen, Alexandra Phillips.
Support for the Visual Arts Program is provided by the Milton & Sally Avery Arts Foundation, The New York Community Trust, the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and by the Cathy and Stephen Weinroth Commissioning Fund for the Arts. The institution's operations are made possible in part by public funds provided through the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.
