Winter Workspace 2024

When
All Day
Where
Glyndor Gallery

The Winter Workspace program consists of two back-to-back, six-week sessions, in which 12 New York area-artists research and develop work informed by the site, ecology and history of Wave Hill. Over the past fifteen years, the Winter Workspace has supported more than 150 artists with studio space and funding. Artists are encouraged to expand their practices using resources from the garden, including access to Wave Hill’s thriving plant collections, horticultural and curatorial staff, history, architecture and visitors. Stay in the loop for more information regarding our upcoming cohort of Winter Workspace artists and stop by Glyndor Gallery for Drop-In Sundays and Open Studios, where visitors can meet the artists and learn about their creative practices. See the calendar for listings.

Emily Lombardo will create a series of prints that draw connections between queer resilience and the ability of plants to adapt to hostile environments by evolving, highlighting how both humans and plants create systems of care and strategies for survival which help to overcome generational trauma.
