Please join us for a discussion of local cultural landmarks and ongoing urban transformations in the Lower East Side/Chinatown neighborhood in collaboration with the public artwork Constellation by Cheryl Wing-Zi Wong.
Constellation is an architectural sculpture, performance, and panel series that activates the underused plaza in Seward Park as a transformative community public space. The site-specific sculptural pavilion is composed of interlocked wooden modules that will be re-arranged and transformed seasonally in three different configurations over the course of the exhibition. Constellation will be on view through June 19, 2018.
This exhibition and event are made possible by the Art in the Parks: UNIQLO Park Expressions Grant, which supports the creation of artworks by New York City-based emerging artists at 10 parks that are highly visible, but underserved by cultural programming. The UNIQLO grant program will transform these locations into engaging art destinations with a series of rotating exhibitions and community events through 2019.
