Wave Hill chose originality and diversity of artistic approach to frame Returning to the Source. Now a decade old, the Winter Workspace program is known for bold experimentation and for artists forging novel connections to nature. Reconnecting with former artists for the exhibition was exciting and meaningful. Bringing the artworks together now underscores the breadth of exploration that happens here.
On view is an incredible range of media, including animation, video, performance, works on paper, sculpture, textiles, painting and mixed media.
Exhibiting artists are Whitney Artell, Michele Brody, Sindy Butz, Julian Chams, Elisabeth Condon, Dennis RedMoon Darkeem, Francisco Donoso, Dahlia Elsayed, Nicolás Dumit Estévez Raful Espejo, Gwen Fabricant, Beatrice Glow, Sabrina Gschwandtner, Asuka Hishiki, Elizabeth Hoy, Nova Jiang, Yeon Jin Kim, Tamara Kostianovsky, Jessica Lagunas, Nick Lamia, Amy Lincoln, Robyn Love, Next Epoch Seed Library (Anne Percoco & Ellie Irons), Paloma McGregor, Naomi Reis, Yelaine Rodriguez, Jessica Rohrer, Linda Stillman, Austin Thomas, Michael Kelly Williams and Ezra Wube.
