The Studio Museum in Harlem and NYC Parks invite you to join us in celebration of Maren Hassinger: Monuments. In 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." 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.
Maren Hassinger: Monuments is a public art initiative presented by The Studio Museum in Harlem in partnership with NYC Parks. Site-specific artworks are on view throughout Marcus Garvey Park from June 16, 2018, to June 10, 2019. This event is open to all, but RSVPs are encouraged.
