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 alum Benj Gerdes co-curated the exhibition Rewriting Histories at Fotografisk Centre Copenhagen. The exhibition will be in view from Nov. 6th through Dec. 25th.
Fotografisk Center is an association founded by the Copenhagen European Cultural Capitol 1996 and Copenhagen County Council in 1996.
After eight weeks of research, six curators from the NLE Lab present their site-specific and community responsive exhibition, Through the Parlor, in a former beauty salon in Chinatown. IMA student Betty Yu’s exhibition Workshifts is an interactive installation that will be apart of the opening reception this Friday the 8th. It will be featured for 5 weeks.
