Glyndor Gallery | September 15 - December 01, 2013
Tandem Pursuits is inspired by Bashford Dean, a resident of Wave Hill House from 1909 until his death in 1928 at the age of 61. At the start of his residence here, Dean was Curator of Arms and Armor at the Metropolitan Museum of Art; and Curator of Fish at the American Museum of Natural History. The intersection of his interest in both fish and armor provides the opportunity to bring together a remarkable collection of contemporary art that explores concepts of adaptation, pattern, and protection. The exhibition includes installation, painting, sculpture, drawing and video by artists WonJung Choi, Amisha Gadani, Frank Gehry, Carol Hepper, Camilla Huey, Simone Leigh, Michelle Jaffe, Irvin Morazan, Kymia Nawabi, James Prosek, Christy Rupp, Lytle Shaw & Jimbo Blachly, Ben Snead, Holly Sumner, Marina Zurkow.
