Works on Water

Triennial Art Festival with exhibitions and expeditions

DetailsJune 16, 2017
3LD Art & Technology Center

The exhibition on display from June 5 – June 30 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.

To get there: Take any NYC Ferry to Pier 11/Wall Street. Walk up Wall Street to Broadway. Make a left on Broadway and a right on Rector Street. Turn left on Greenwich Street to reach 3LD Art & Technology Center.
