Glyndor Gallery | Feb 19–March 31

Artist Duy Hoàng joins the Winter Workspace program as a New York Community Trust Van Lier Fellow. Hoàng holds a BFA from the University of Massachusetts Lowell and an MFA from Columbia University, and has exhibited work in the US, Germany, Serbia and the UK. Originally from Vietnam, Hoàng’s complex and often interactive sculptural practice engages with migrating/edible gardens, topics of survival and memory and notions of “home,” finding inspiration in material experimentation and site-specific projects He looks forward to engaging with Wave Hill’s grounds and horticulture specialists during his residency. While here, he worked with invasive species and explore subjects of migration, scientific and natural history, and the potential of growth and inevitability of decay of plants and their human caretakers.
