I am excited to announce that I will be exhibiting new works for Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center’s 2013-2014 exhibition season! Planned for spring of 2014, my exhibition will include a new series of generative and data works from online communities.
Roots: Drawing Connections Through Community, the exhibition season curated by Holly Shen Shaves, opens September 19 from 6-8pm; MSKCC’s Brooklyn Infusion Gallery is located along Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn.
Artists in the exhibition include:
David Eppley, Fall 2013
Jeff Carpenter and Anthony Vogt, Winter 2013
Brian Cavanaugh, Spring 2014
Robyn Ellenbogen, Summer 2014
Brooklyn, NY, September 6, 2013 – Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center is pleased to announce the opening of the annual 2013-14 fine arts exhibition program at Brooklyn inFUSION Gallery on Thursday, September 19 from 6-8pm. Roots: Drawing Connections Through Community explores the metaphor between the roots of MSKCC’s history and mission — similar to the winding, nonlinear roots of organic plant growth — and the artistic line, an indispensable component of visual representation.
The first of four installation artists to realize a site specific proposal, David Eppley kicks off the program with a bold yet low-impact network of colored pathways, which are meticulously woven through the facility interior using brightly colored vinyl tape. In December 2013, Jeff Carpenter and Anthony Vogt will implement a custom-built series of led-light panels of varying thickness in order to mimic the sensation of seeing underwater, gazing upward through sunlight towards the treetops from below the water’s surface. In spring 2014, Brian Cavanaugh will fill the gallery windows with a large, laser-cut paper mural created from a generative data set based on the number 130 — the same number of years that MSKCC has been open. The final installation for the 2013-14 will feature concentric rings of large bamboo stalks that are intricately cantilevered on the gallery wall in a work by Robyn Ellenbogen. The bamboo stalks are intended to house scrolled up stories, memories and thoughts submitted by both patients, visitors and MSKCC staff members, who will be invited by the artist to share their sentiments in a special opening and closing ceremony at BIC.
The adjacent clinical space features additional works by Sarah Brenneman, Daniel Cordani, Anujan Ezhikode, Julia Forrest, Ginny Fox, Batya Kuncman, Carla Lobmier and Alex Paik, all of which will be on view through August 2014.
