A public garden & cultural center

Zachary Fabri

Winter Workspace 2013
Glyndor Gallery | January 2 – March 24, 2013 

Zachary Fabri’s work interrupts the viewer’s pattern of comprehension, spurring consideration of the systems of oppression inherent in both personal and community life. He allows the idea behind a work to dictate the medium. A 2010 residency at the Jardim Canadá Art and Technology Center in Belo Horizonté, Brazil, led the artist to create a series of works with iron ore. During the Winter Workspace at Wave Hill, Fabri is interested to see how working in a more isolated natural environment will affect both his process and his choice of materials. He has previously had residencies with the Home Base Project at HomeBase V in Berlin and at the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council’s workspace on Governors Island. His work has been included in exhibitions such as Pardon Our Analysis: Gathering for Gil-Scott Heron at Symphony Space, New York; Curate NYC in Brooklyn; and The Big Screen Project at the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council. The artist had a solo exhibition in 2010 at Galerie Open in Berlin. Fabri earned his MFA from Hunter College of the City University of New York.
