Beneath our feet and on the surface of things, Art at 5 Anderson
New Rochelle, New York
August 13 – September 3, 2016
Seeking to thoughtfully explore how initiatives of urban planning can align with pressing concerns for the lived environment, the exhibition brings together works which link the sustainability of earth, soil, air, and water with the related dynamics of social and political power, shaping the lives of the communities inhabiting the space, materially as well as culturally.
Participating artists include a two-person exhibit by Ellie Irons and Graciela Casselon view at Apartment 101, juxtaposing Iron's focus on the wild weeds and plants that are vital to sustain urban paved soil and Cassel's exploration of our mediatized and mediated experiences of the environment around us. Cassel will further unveil, for the first time, her new installation, Project Intrinsic on the rooftop of 5 Anderson.
