Currently on view at SculptureCenter, New York is “Garbage Bay,” a solo exhibition by Danish artist Tue Greenfort whose interdisciplinary practice deals with the overlap of public and private realms, natural and cultural history. Commissioned through SculptureCenter’s Artist-in-Residence program, Greenfort is producing a new body of work that considers art’s role in reaffirming and dismantling assumptions about nature and the environment.
Through extensive research, discussions with experts, artists and environmentalists, the exhibition and artwork presented examine the site of Jamaica Bay, a marshland that spans the outer boroughs of Brooklyn and Queens in New York City. Greenfort’s exhibition and the discussions hosted around it will seek to uncover parallels and contextualize relationships between art, ecology, and politics, using the actualities of the specific site of Jamaica Bay, as well as its broader implications.
“Garbage Bay” is on view through January 27th, 2014.
