Works on Water

Triennial Art Festival with exhibitions and expeditions. The exhibition is anchored by artists who make work with water as site or material, many of whom are defining the field through longtime commitments to New York City waterways and urban ecology. Artists who work with water are responding to the urgency of a changing climate, increasing urban density and a burgeoning public awareness of ecological concerns. Their works, made in, on or in direct response to the water connect to current economic, political and global issues, and reference Land Art, Public Art, and Performance Art. The cross-disciplinary nature of this event is intended to spark dialogue about the various approaches of visual and performing arts, environmental and social sciences and urban planning to engaging with the water on an individual, community, and global scale.
Date: Monday June 5 – Friday June 30
Location: 3LD Art & Technology Center – 80 Greenwich Street, New York NY
