Gina Goico, Sanar (Heal)
November 1, 2018 to March 31, 2019
Inwood Hill Park, Manhattan
Please note: This is a past exhibit that is no longer installed in the park.
As we are inundated daily with media, Gina Goico reminds us of the power of cleansing ourselves and holding space for our community. In this case, she invited neighbors to reconnect through conversation and collaboration creating traditional Dominican pellizas that read “reconocer para sanar”/ “recognize to heal” in her installation Sanar (Heal). Sanar (Heal) is one of two artworks presented as part of the exhibition Persuasive Visions. Inspired by W. E. B. Du Bois’s conviction that propaganda through the arts can create social change, Persuasive Visions presents the work of two local artists, Gina Goico and Nick Kozak who respond to today’s constant deluge of (mis)information. Persuasive Visions was curated by Stephanie A. Lindquist.
This exhibition is presented by the Northern Manhattan Arts Alliance.
