Celebrate spring with the opening of three new exhibitions at Wave Hill: the group exhibition Perfect Trouble: Queering Natureculture at Glyndor Gallery, a new site-specific exhibition by Tao Leigh Goffe in the Sunroom Project Space, and a solo presentation of photographs by Ruben Natal-San Miguel in Wave Hill House.

Perfect Trouble explores queerness as a concept that is at once inherently natural and a social construct, featuring works by artists that challenge the nature/culture dichotomy and investigate in-between and overlapping spaces that reveal sexual and gender identity to be mutable and fluid. Goffe's Plot and Provision: Crate-Digging is a climate-art, multimedia installation that explores the notion of the commons, how land has been historically segmented and intergenerational healing through the sounds and the soil of the Bronx. The exhibition Nature Finds a Way presents photographs by Natal-San Miguel that reflect the resilience of cultural identity in a dense urban environment like New York City and how nature here—a tropical mural, artificial plants or floral prints—also finds a way to be seen and challenge heteronormative ideals.

Registration encouraged but not required for this drop-in event; online or by calling 718.549.3200 x251.
