What Wilderness: 9 Conversations on Ecology, Abstraction, and the Anthropocene
Throughout the month of October, in conjunction with ISCP’s group exhibition Aqueous Earth, resident Dylan Gauthier will lead a series of public boat trips moving through blighted urban space on neighboring Newtown Creek. The piece entitled What Wilderness: 9 Conversations on Ecology, Abstraction, and the Anthropocene will invite members of the public to build a punt and to join conversations with artists, writers and scholars working on ecological themes. Guests include Mary Walling Blackburn, Una Chaudhuri, Willis Elkins, Sam Gould, Ellie Irons, Christopher Kennedy, Sto Len, Maureen McLane, Aviva Rahmani, Mark Read, Brie Ruais and Marina Zurkow.
This exhibition and related public programs are supported by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, National Endowment for the Arts, The Greenwich Collection, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito and Antonio Reynoso, Council Member, 34th District and the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA).
