This discussion will focus on ways in which soils in urban areas are different from soils in less densely-populated areas. What do we know about NYC soils based on the latest research? What are some of the broader implications of that research for human health, environmental remediation, urban agriculture, and forest restoration?

This conversation is important in an urban context because soil research typically takes place in non-urban areas. Urban soils are under unique pressures due to exposure to pollution and development. Studying urban soils can provide insight into how ecological communities persist and function under these pressures and other disturbances.

Because soil research is often done in non-urban settings, the preexisting data in field can’t be used to make assumptions or answer questions about urban soils. We hope this panel will engender a conversation to identify gaps in research, prioritizing which questions need to be addressed and providing insight for better land management practices.

Biographies

Jamie Bennett is the executive director of ArtPlace America, a partnership among 16 foundations, 8 federal agencies, and 6 financial institutions working to position art and culture as a core sector of community planning and development by investing in, researching, and supporting those who lead and execute creative placemaking projects. To date, ArtPlace has invested $96 million in 262 projects in communities of all sizes. Previously, Jamie worked at the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, Columbia University, the Agnes Gund Foundation, The Museum of Modern Art, and the New York Philharmonic.

Esther Robinson has worked on behalf of America's artists for more than 20 years as a foundation program officer, television and film producer/director, technology entrepreneur, and arts activist. From 1999-2006, she was Director of Film/Video and Performing Arts for the Creative Capital Foundation. Since 2006, her non-profit ArtHome has provided financial training and asset building programming to artists and organizations nationally. As ArtBuilt co-director, she oversaw the 2015 "Studio in the Park" Residencies, NYC’s first-ever Mobile Studio program (in partnership with NYC Parks). She is also an award-winning documentary filmmaker and producer.

Kerry McLean, Vice President of Community Development at WHEDco, directs community planning, commercial revitalization, and creative placemaking initiatives, and oversaw cultural programming at their Bronx Music Heritage Center. She has more than 15 years of community development experience and, prior to WHEDco, was a Housing Planner under Bronx Borough President Adolfo Carrión Jr. She is a Coro NY Neighborhood Leadership Program alumnus, and her work has been featured at the American Planning Association, Municipal Arts Society, Americans for the Arts, NYC Department of Health, NYC Department of Small Business Services, and the International Downtown Association. She has an M.A. in International Development from American University and Master’s of Urban Planning from Hunter College.

Ann Shostrom co-founded First Street Green, converting a derelict lot into an open art space serving the Lower East Side. FSG provides murals, sculpture, and cultural programming in First Park, partnering with artists and community groups. Shostrom exhibits her artworks internationally at galleries and museums. She made public art from decommissioned weapons in Albania. Shostrom is represented by Elizabeth Harris Gallery in New York, and is an Associate Professor at Penn State University. She has a BFA from the Art Institute of Chicago, and an MFA from Syracuse University.

Juanli Carrión, born in Yecla, Spain, lives and works in New York. His work has been exhibited internationally including United States, Mexico, Argentina, Spain, Portugal, Greece, the United Kingdom, Japan, and Kenya. In 2014, he began his series of geopolitical gardens, Outer Seed Shadow, commissioned by NYC Parks, La Nau of Valencia, and Contemporary Art Center La Conservera. His work is based on the identification of cultural conflicts revealed in the definition of social, political, and economic identity. To develop projects, he engages with specific social groups, investigating their natural, emotional, social, and political landscapes, then articulating aesthetic experiences that reflect questionable ideas of Western reality.

Jonathan Kuhn, a 30-year veteran of NYC Parks, serves as its Director of Art & Antiquities and oversees the placement, display, and care of monuments and permanent and temporary art in the City’s parks. He has curated more than 30 exhibitions on the history of parks in New York, and authored the catalogue, The Outdoor Gallery: 40 Years of Public Art in New York City Parks, and the guide, Historic Houses in New York City Parks.

Join acclaimed photographer Beth Moon, author of Ancient Skies, Ancient Trees, as she delves into her artistic process and the experience of traveling around the world to photograph these natural relics. It is only in the rarest and clearest of nights that we can look up at the sky to find a sprinkling of twinkling stars.

Surrounded by the bright lights of humanity, the infinite majesty of the night sky can only be truly enjoyed by those devoted enough to seek it. Critically-acclaimed photographer Beth Moon’s own appreciation of cosmos inspired her quest, spanning from continent to continent, to some of the darkest corners of world, where constellations and nebulas shine more brightly. Moon’s Ancient Skies, Ancient Trees captures the boundless beauty of trees under the night sky, seemingly undisturbed by humans. Discover her relentless journey—undeterred by knee-high mud, windstorms, and distance—to reveal the rich hues of the night that are often too faint to be seen by the naked eye.

Beth Moon is a photographer based in New York who has gained international recognition for her large-scale, richly-toned platinum prints. Her prints are held in numerous public and private collections and have appeared in more than sixty solo and group exhibitions in the United States, Italy, England, France, Israel, Brazil, Dubai, Singapore, and Canada, receiving widespread critical acclaim. With this new book, she explores color photography for the first time.

Guest co-curators and art historians Deborah Frizzell and Harry J. Weil lead a conversationwith artists Samira Abbassy, Scherezade Garcia, and Fay Ku who are exhibiting as part of Outcasts: Women in the Wilderness. The artists speak about how they use ancient and modern mythologies as a source to create artwork that explores hybrid alternatives to the social and cultural order.

Samira Abbassy’s self-portraiture and mixed-media sculptures explore cultural identity, knitting together disparate visual languages, conventions and myths drawn from Arab-Iranian, Persian, Muslim, Christian, Hindu, Jewish, and Buddhist traditions.

Interdisciplinary visual artist Scherezade Garcia addresses contemporary allegories of history and the processes of colonization and migration, which frequently evoke memories of faraway home and the hopes that accompany relocating in a new land.

Fay Ku layers her drawings with hybrid animal, human and vegetal forms, her archetypes comment on cultural identity and tradition through a delicate sense of line and a sensitivity to surface.

Free with admission to the grounds.
