Maren Hassinger, Maren Hassinger: Monuments

June 16, 2018 to June 10, 2019
Marcus Garvey Park, Manhattan

Please note: This is a past exhibit that is no longer installed in the park.

In Maren Hassinger; Monuments, the eight sculptures on view respond to the landscape of Marcus Garvey Park. Hassinger considers the natural environment a site of hope and potential, a place of equality, where humanity has a shared purpose of stewardship and understanding. According to Hassinger, "Within nature, we are equal." Maren Hassinger: Monuments transforms Marcus Garvey Park into a space both physical and psychological and prompts the audience to consider the place of nature in their lives. Each of the eight sculptures is meant to provide a contemplative moment, one that invites multiple responses that call forth memories or associations for those who encounter them.
