Tang-Wei Hsu: Constellations
Over the course of three weeks this fall, eleven Brooklyn Preparatory high school students including Claudius Copeland, Alexis Franklin, James Garcia, D’Anna Gregory, Khadejah Halliday, Edwin Ramirez, Chelimar Tavarez, Liana Vasquez, Aaron Villalobos, Andre Woodley, and Brittany Young, collaborated with International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) artist-in-residence Tang-Wei Hsu (based in Taiwan) to create a cosmos-inspired installation for Brooklyn Prep. Contributing students gained insight into contemporary art practices while creating a twenty-foot site-specific work with Hsu along the corridors of their school. The completed landscape is composed of the students’ collective symbols of spaces and objects based on their current, future and imagined lives.
