<![CDATA[Artist Talk: A Collective Utterance - Naima Green]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2018/06/25/artist-talk-a-collective-utterance-naima-green http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2018/06/25/artist-talk-a-collective-utterance-naima-green Date: June 25, 2018

Join Naima Green and curator Oluremi C. Onabanjo in a disucssion about the Arsenal Gallery exhibition A Collective Utterance.

About the Exhibition

A Collective Utterance is a solo exhibition of photographs by the artist Naima Green, presenting a selection of images culled from her ongoing series “Jewels from The Hinterland” (2013–present). With black and brown artists, writers, culture workers, and thinkers positioned centrally in each image, the exhibition spans green spaces throughout New York City—such as Riverside Park, Brooklyn Botanic Garden, and Central Park—as well as select sites across the United States.

With each photograph, Green offers a statement of quietude, solace, insistence, and strength, making visible a community purportedly relegated to the margins, yet who critically inform dominant tastes and trends. These gentle, nuanced compositions are particularly urgent within the context of seemingly interminable sociopolitical crisis, where black and brown bodies are continually imaged as sites of violence and trauma. Within the framework of A Collective Utterance, each individual is left to be—in all of their tenderness, complexities, and intricacies.

A Collective Utterance is organized by Oluremi C. Onabanjo.

<![CDATA[The World's Fair That Almost Was and Other Stories of Marine Park]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2018/06/28/the-worlds-fair-that-almost-was-other-stories-of-marine-park http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2018/06/28/the-worlds-fair-that-almost-was-other-stories-of-marine-park Date: June 28, 2018

A lecture given by Urban Planner/Historian Thomas J. Campanella of Cornell University.

This talk will focus on the largely forgotten history of Brooklyn's Marine Park, an ancient estuarine landscape and native American settlement site that became a kind of "blank slate" for visionary proposals in the early 20th century. Among these was Congressman Sol Bloom's plan for a 1932 Washington Bicentennial Exposition. Meant to be the largest fair ever staged, it would feature pavilions for 46 nations, a Knute Rockne stadium for 200,000 spectators and a centerpiece tower "taller and greater than either the Woolworth Building or the Eiffel Tower.” Though the initiative fell apart, it set into motion a campaign that eventually led to the 1939 New York World’s Fair. Before and again after Bloom, Marine Park was the focus of efforts to build a vast urban playground to complement the passive, pastoral landscape of Prospect Park. Stretching from Fillmore Avenue to Plum Beach, the 1,700-acre complex was laid out as a recreation ground of industrial scale—to tap and defuse the restless energies of the urban working classes, and impart paternalistic lessons of discipline, cooperation and civic virtue.

Meet the artists and curators of our summer exhibitions at the opening.

Ecological Consciousness: Artist as Instigator continues Wave Hill’s efforts to examine the ways that artists engage in ecological projects that present calls to action. The exhibition documents environmental art that explores persistent problems throughout New York City.

In the Sunroom Project Space, Priyanka Dasgupta and Chad Marshall create an installation that uses traditional landscape architecture, such as a conventional English garden maze, to expose the instability of identity in the United States. Dasgupta and Marshall explore the dichotomy of the sanctuary—its ability to protect as well as restrict.

In the Sun Porch, Katie Westmoreland’s presentation of kinetic tapestries responds to the space’s architecture, evoking the patterns cast by sunlight through trees and plants. Her immersive installation utilizes the passing light and shadow patterns as active mediums in her work, calling attention to the sun’s enduring, inspirational qualities.
