For the past seven months, Chance Ecologies has brought together a group of artists to explore the wilderness of Hunter’s Point South, Long Island City, Queens. The post industrial site stood in disuse for 35 years, allowing for a complex, contemporary ecology to develop. Over the course of the summer, Chance Ecologies organized a series of art events, workshops and happenings that invited the public to experience the site prior to being completely leveled in October 2015, as part of the Hunters Point South housing development project.
IMA alumnae Sarah Nelson Wright and Laura Chipely will be opening their new group exhibit, Combined Overflow which is an exhibition of creative responses to the Newtown Creek and the Gowanus Canal, two New York City waterways with similar histories of industry, pollution and neglect.
Combined Overflow will be exhibited from April 26th to May 24th at Proteus Gowanus, located at 543 Union Street (Nevins Subway Station) in Brooklyn, New York.
