Various, Flow.12 Art and Music at Randall's Island
June 2, 2012 to September, 2012
Randall's Island Park, Manhattan
Please note: This is a past exhibit that is no longer installed in the park.
The Randall’s Island Park Alliance (formerly the Randall’s Island Sports Foundation), The Bronx Museum of the Arts, and Made Event are pleased to present FLOW, a two-part environmental art exhibition on view during the summers of 2011 and 2012 along the shoreline at Randall’s Island Park. The project is aimed at fostering appreciation of the shoreline through artistic expression, while calling visitors to interact with and care for the Park’s island environment. FLOW features ten site specific art projects, five each summer, by participants in the Bronx Museum’s Artists in the Marketplace (AIM) program for emerging artists.
FLOW.11 was a great success, fostering a coalition of environmental, musical and artistic partners. Summer park visitors and concertgoers visited the artworks alongside the river, looking out across the city’s skyline. FLOW.12 – this year's exhibition – will be open to the public from June-September, and will feature five new site-specific installations, all reflecting and encouraging interaction with the Park’s history and environment. FLOW.12 includes Gabriela Bertiller’s Glamorous Picnic, Nathan Gwynne’s Famous Faces of Randall’s Island, Michael Clyde Johnson’s Untitled (Two Viewing Rooms, Offset), Laura Kaufman’s Meters to the Center, and Sean Wrenn’s Awakening Asylum.
FLOW has been made possible through a generous grant from the Rockefeller Foundation’s New York City Cultural Innovation Fund (CIF) and through support from Made Event, proud producers of The Electric Zoo Festival, NYC’s largest electronic dance music festival, held annually at Randall’s Island Park.
The FLOW exhibitions express the confluence of art, music and environment at Randall’s Island Park, in the midst of one of the world’s greatest cities.
